    I'll post back with pics later tonight if I can get my camera working.

    Took about 40 minutes here tonight after I clocked off and did a grip chop, and some slide radius work. Tomorrow I am going to finish off the slide radiusing and maybe try my hand at a stipple job. Then I am going to drag Ichy's ass over to the shop and he's gonna tutor me on a trigger job like he's done on his. When all is said and done, I hope Cham(Leibster) has his sights done because I'd like to stick a set on top of this thing and have Rich refinish the slide and controls for me and give it to pop's for christmas providing (a) he wants it, and (b) I don't fall absolutely in love with it.

    same size as a sub compact 9mm, about 7/8" or so shorter. Next step is to dress up the radius job a little better on the steel. I did bump the left tube on the rear sight w/ the buffing wheel and the sights are a little odd looking since you don't see the green capsule in the middle during daytime conditions, but I think it gives more light dispersion and is easier to see at night now. I'll try to get a shot of that tomorrow night. I'm also going to improve the beveling inside the magwell, and add mag extraction thumbholes, and start on the frame radiusing and fitting.

    That looks totally awesome!

    I've wondered why no one else (that I've seen) has done that, thinking that perhaps there's not enough metal in the corners to maintain strength.
