Love the dehorned look. Bet it feels great in the hand. Threads like this make me start thinking that maybe I need a 1911... one of these days. :p
Great pistol. I too would be proud to own it. I'm not really a big fan of that much blending though. Just an aesthetic thing for me.
Congrats on having such a nice piece built. Outstanding workmanship right up to the (plastic?) trigger! But then, that's why they build fords and chevies.
Whoa--absolutely stunning! I agree--that is the best fit grip safety I have ever seen.

On another note, when I first skimmed the comment
Great work on the dehorn..
, I thought it said "Great work on the dremel..." ;)
Wow... just wow. It's a beauty.

I love the subtlety of the dehorning. Angles where there should be angles, but softly. ;)

And for all the handcrafting and beautiful touches, you resisted the forward cocking serrations. BRAVO! :D

Too bad we don't have a :drool: emoticon...
Thanks guys, I appreciate all of the kind words.

The trigger was at the customers request. And while a plastic trigger sounds cheap, the STI's are really one of the better triggers on the market (extremely light and the bow isn't too long). Especially if somebody wants a long trigger.
