    Caspian XR and some custom touches

    Hi all,
    Haven't been posting here for a while. I have been way too busy with life, getting a new shop building outfitted and running, and just working on pistols. Just thought I would post this one here as it is something really a bit different. It is based on the excellent Caspian XR kits pus some adds.
    EGW ignition set
    STI ti strut
    Greider medium trigger
    MARS lanyard loop mag well
    22 LPI curved serrations on top of the slide
    10-8 sights drilled for Trijicons
    VZ John's Gatorbacks
    Ed Brown mag release
    Ed Brown ambi safety
    Storm Lake barrel
    carbonized rails for gall prevention
    Front strap serrations removed and 25 LPI CNC checkering by EGW
    4.5 lb trigger pull (of course it's crisp:) )
    Underside of slide release serrated at 40 LPI
    Rear of slide serrated at 40 LPI to match 10-8 serrations
    Rear of slide slightly flattened for better target picture
    60 degree target barrel crown
    and so on.....here are the pics. Hope to have some more time to just come over and hang out now that things are slowing down a bit!

    Grip checkering

    Your checkering work on the grip front strap and back is outstanding.

    Thanks guys. I have one more in the works that will be a bit different than this one and then another one waiting for a buyer. The nice thing is that I can build one of these pretty well built out and sell it for less than $1500.00. And it will be twice the gun the $900.00 GSR is :-)
