This customer sent me a brand new SFS 9MM FN in polished blue for some work. I stippled the front and back straps, pulled the diconnect and then did some trigger and reliability work. The finished product is shown below. I matted the lower frame and then blued only the lower frame. The combination of the deep blue/black polished slide and the deep blue/black matte frame is striking.
Ok, here are some more pics with a lighter background and some more light. I think that it shows the color of the pistol better. I just have to keep working on it until I know what shutter speed, light and flash combo works best. I have even thought about building a light box to take the pics with. This will have to do for now
That has to be one of if not the best looking Hi Powers I have ever seen. Awesome work!
Looks really good to me .. How does the Stippling feel?
Jess - again some lovely eye candy - I have as in your other thread added two returns beteen each of your pics - they do get a bit confused with each other when ''touching''!
Stipling looks just dandy and of course the BHP is (IMO) just as classic a shape and pleasing to the eye as JMB's other great creation.

Wow! That is a fine looking Hi Power. Somebody is going to be very pleased with that.

That's what my BHP would like to be when it grows up. Beautiful!

That is one beautiful piece of work. You did yourself proud.
Very nice work. I can see you take care of all the little details. Lot of thought went into that project.
