    Kimber Pro Carry by Rogers

    Just got this prize back from Chuck Rogers. It's an early stainless Kimber Pro Carry. The frame is done in "Titanium Blue" Ceracoat. Chuck's machining magic is obvious in his bobtail, golfballing, and assorted trim work...

    Nice AZ... Not sure that I've seen a crowned bull barrel before, it definitely looks classy. Was there any special consideration given to golfballing and bobtailing the frame since it is aluminum? I've heard so many different opinions on chopping the aluminum frames.

    Yeah, that business end really gets your attention! Love the way he flush-fit it with the slide before crowning. I was concerned about bobtailing an alloy frame, but Chuck reassured me there would be no problem. The ceracoat should be a good protectorant.

    Yep, Davidson. Didn't Chuck blend them well? The curves look like they were made for the gun. I guess they were...
