The P250: customization by owners - lots of pretty pics.
The inexpensive cost of frames for the P250 and the fact that the frame isn't a gun, has encouraged owners to do some customizing. Here's one that's just a grip sleeve:
Others have done some nice Dura Coating:
And a comparison of stock to custom paint job:
Here's another 'artist' job - patience we'll get to the frame mods. Notice in the next two pics how the textured grip panel has been left the original color. I bet that took some patience!
and another by the same guy, this time TITANIUM on a subcompact:
Ok some 'trim' jobs:
Notice in this pic the muzzle end of the frame. The frame normally comes to the end of the slide. Here we see it's been cut back to a bit more traditional look. Also he's installed a SS slide.
I have more of these trimmed frames, but I'm only allowed 12 images so I can't include any more.
Ok, now on to the frame conversions:
Here's what we're looking at. This is a subcompact slide on a cut down compact frame. This creates a Commander look. I.e. the Commander size of a 1911 in comparison to the full size. This mod also adds a rail to the subcompact and increases the capacity:
And here's how it's done. Here is a pic of a compact frame beside a subcompact:
Here's the original subcompact with the compact frame:
Here's the compact frame cut down to the subcompact slide length:
and here's the final look:
