    Sneak Peek at a 9X23 Full House Custom

    This is just too good to not share. I have been working on a full house 9X23 commander for a local customer. His idea of the ideal carry gun is a Caspian frame and slide in stainless, checkered and bobtailed. The final finish will be hardchrome. I am starting with the pics of the slide here to let you see what is going into this build. I am still waiting on the barrel from Barsto.

    All of the slide work has been done by Dan Burwell at Burwell Customs in PA. I have started the frame work. It will be a Nowling/Wilson ramped barrel, hand checkered at 25 LPI on the front strap and rear bobtail housing with all of the appropriate internal pieces featuring an EGW ignition set and then a nice blend of Wilson and Ed Brown components. Dan did arrow serrations, borders, Heinie Straight 8 install. I will be fitting and blending the frame to the slide and then doing 40 LPI serrations on the back to match the work that Dan did on the sights. I am pretty excited about this build as is the customer.

    I was going to wait on posting any pics until the build was further along, but I just could not wait to show off the exceptional work that Dan has contributed so far to this build!

    By the way, the cocking serrations are colt slanted cockers. It is just an "optical illusion" that they are vertical looking in some of the pics.

    A very nice looking slide. I really like the top serrations, they add a nice touch.

    I for one, would love to see the pics of the progress as this weapon is "born". The discription of the "guts" of the weapon make it sound very wantable.

    I have been intrigued with the 9X23 cal. for some time now. I like to refer to it as a 9mm Mag.

    What a great build this will be. Hope all goes well. Can't wait to eye ball the frame. ---------

    I'm deciding if I should cry a little bit NOW...or just wait until it's finished and really start bawling.

    That is some freaking downright beauteous machine work.

    Doggone it I love that "work of art" serrated Flat Top.
    Nicest Flat Top Serrations I've ever seen & a super crispy, flawless, sight installation.

    That is one very sweet looking slide.

    I can't wait to see the completed job.

    nice ! the 9x23 is a hot caliber... You should also be able to shoot .38 super from her.
