    My first 2011.
    Never saw the point given where I used to live. Now that I can have magazines that accept what the grip will hold, they make more sense to me.
    I had a collection of parts floating around for quite awhile. I was hoping to build the gun myself but just ran out of time and inspiration over the years. So I finally reached out to a buddy that had some work done by someone that he was VERY happy with. So I reached out, we figured out the scope of the work, and I sent the pistol off. When it came back to me I wanted it milled for a specific MRDS. I came across a company that does what I was looking for 20 minutes from my home. I dropped it to them and in 2 weeks it was done. They recommended a gunsmith (again, 20 minutes from my house) that does slide cutting (it’s a JEM slide and was a boat anchor). I gave it to him and got it back yesterday.
    To say I’m thrilled would be an understatement.
    Thank you to:

    He built the gun. The trigger is dumb crisp.
    Vulcan Machine Works
    They did the optic cut at a reasonable price in very short order

    Robert did the slide cuts with minimal input from me. They are gorgeous and he’s a hella nice guy that builds amazing race guns and actually answers his phone!
    Thank you to everyone that helped me on this one!!

    It looks awesome. I'm gonna contact vulcan and get my slide milled too.
    They are awesome to deal with. Good luck!
    That’s a slick looking pistola there.

    Post up a range report when you get a chance.

    Gonna shoot some competition with it?

    Thank you. Will do.
    I have a Shadow2 all set up with holster, etc. I'd most likely run it. I like running double/single in matches.

    I finally got the pistol out.
    It seems like it's gonna be a smooth shooting handgun. I had some issues and only got about 5 rounds through it before they popped up. Got home, gave it a GOOD scrubbing and I'll try again hopefully soon.
    There was some grit in the gun that I missed, unfortunately. Led to a stoppage.

    Keep in mind that many pistols require extended break in periods too. Hundreds of rounds sometimes.

    Don't get too frustrated with early failures.
    I had an Ed Brown pistol that took about 400 rounds before I considered it reliable to carry. Others have been 1-2 trips to the range and cleaning.
