    That is a pretty stout load for a pistol. How bad does it kick?

    With maximum loads, recoil is heavier compared to a Desert Eagle cal50 shot the same day. However these loads were for testing the strengh of the repair ; now I rather use 40grs BP with REAL and that is more comfortable.

    The stripes were painted with black "Indian Ink" ; wood was stained and varnished eventually.

    The scars of the repair are less noticeable now.

    It looks good to me.And being that you tested the barrel out with a max load,it looks like you won't have any problems with it.Nice Tiger striping:cool:

    That's some of the best-looking fakery I've seen. Ususally it looks like a monkey went to town with a permanent marker and a blow torch. Nice job!
