I arranged to have an Auto Ordnance .45 -- really a mediocre gun, from the mechanical assessments I've since been given -- sent to Shawn Herman of Shawn's Tactical Speciality (http://www.shawnstactical.com). I didn't give Shawn any instructions except one.

"Go nuts," I told him.

Well, he did.

The gun went from this...



...to this:















The formerly parkerized .45 was de-horned and a KG Gun-Cote finish was applied. The gun also boasts newly installed Novak sights (to replace the GI fixed sights), a Kart barrel, an NM bushing, Ed Brown tactical thumb and grip safeties, an MGW hammer and sear, and a Videcki trigger (a "trigger job" was performed).

Groups (comparing before and after) are significantly improved and the gun is pleasant to shoot. In a just-back-from-the-UPS-truck test of approximately 85 rounds, the gun fed and fired American Eagle ball ammo without malfunction.



Shawn is the tactically savvy fellow who has brought us great aftermarket sheaths for the Ka-Bar TDI knife and a variety of other production blades. He offers a lot of great products -- blades, gunsmithing, complete packages, etc. -- and I have bought many things from him. I encourage you to visit his site and, if you do, tell him that you heard about him from me.

Looks good - do watch it though on the metalwork.

Kahr either does an A1 job or it's....ummmm...horrible.

I'm waiting for a replacement Thompson from them right now after three months of parts breakage and major failures.

Looks like Shawn built you a very nice and serious fighting handgun there. Congrats & shoot it in good health. It's a really great looking firearm now.

Phil, I mean this with the utmost regard, and intend absolutely no offense.

Man, you have got some CRAZY EYES. There isn't a BG alive that would attack you. You don't even need to carry a gun.

Sorry if I've offended.

how come no front strap checkering?
Didn't need it or want it. The grip panels you see were purchased by me to replace the pimpin' Martialist grips -- they're very comfortable. Some sort of rubberized material over a metal frame.

Man, you have got some CRAZY EYES.
Guilty as charged.
