    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!

    HMMM... not bad I guess..


    Are you kidding??? Very nice work. Nice piece.

    I guess my jealous twin made an appearance.

    Is that for the BBQ or your hip?

    Damn there he is again.

    I still want one.

    Very nice. What's up with the slide? Looks like a GSR.

    The base pistol is one of the Caspian Xtreme Recon "kits". It comes with the frame, the slide, the barrel if ordered, the ejector, the firing pin, ejector and a couple of other small bits for a very good price. The frame is basically a Caspian Recon frame with rail. The slide is styled after the Sig GSR because at one time Caspian was making all of the frames for the GSR. Then they cancelled the contract. So now, Caspian has these GREAT kits for a very very nice price. Pick some nice finishing pieces and you end up with a very high end, top quality Caspian firearm that you won't see every body else with. I have built and sold about a half a dozen of these and they have been absolutley stone reliable and tack drivers to boot. Every one has shot one ragged hole free hand at 15 yards.
