    Sneak Peak 9X23 commander nearing completion

    I really did try to resist posting this until completed, but. I just wanted to give you a sneak peak at a project that is getting close to completion. This customer is my first customer and this gun the first project since opening OnTarget. We have been working on this since about march of this year. It has been a matter of getting all the parts, machine work done, and getting the assembly started. This is a multiple resource project and credit goes to Burwell Customs for the slide work, EGW for the base checkering with hand file completion by yours truly. Slide logo by Gary at Zipgraver. The gun will still need all small parts fitted, the back of the slide blended and serrated and the stainless bobtail housing installed, blended and checkered.

    Small parts showed up today. Just some blending, drilling and fitting and I should be able to get some more pics. Thanks for the kind words. This thing should be a tack drivin' BG blaster. And it will look good doing it too! I have another two that I finished today. Want to see pics of those too? Huh???;)

    The grip panels are some of a set of prototypes that I got from VZgrips. I have John working on some for me that will include the OnTarget Logo. 9X23 is a serious carry caliber. All the benefits of the 1911 and the ballistics of a .357 magnum revolver and you carry 12 shots!
