    Stronghold No 1 is done! Pics!

    I have posted a few pics of this before, but it is in the presentation case winging its way to the customer as I write this. This is one of the more complete HP workovers that I have done and it will truly be one of a kind. Please note the stippled heavy bevel on the slide bottoms, stippling down the center of the slide flats, borders and thinning of the front bushing and stippling and heavy front bevel. Relieved slide stop pin hole, and so on. I will not post the complete build list here. It has all of the good stuff and about a 3 3/4 crisp trigger pull and is a shooter. I am hoping the customer likes it as much as I do. It would have stayed in my safe had it not been already payed for :D

    Haha - just seen that on THR - and as I said there - I somehow ''know'' this fella - from earlier stages.

    Nice work Jess.

    I am not even a fan of the BHP but that is a fine looking pistol, I like the stipling work and the finish.

    That looks like it is made for business, very nice work.

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.

    The thumb safety and slide release are made by Cylinder and Slide for the HP.
