When I did the original post I was pretty beat. It has been brough up but some people really need to be thanked.

John Del Pinto, Thanks for the donating the base gun. That was awesome.

CYA, The two Wilson mags that you donated will accompany the gun when it gets it's new home.

Still taking pictures but here are a couple that turned out ok.

The flat top without serrations fits this gun perfectly.

If ever a knife and gun belonged together I thought these two were it. A Strider SnG and the LTW #2 oddly compliment each other. Both are made to last thermonuclear warfare and both do it with style.

For some reason shooting photos of this gun has been a pleasure. Here are some of the "green" photos.

That is a great combination of gun & knife. Love the all black tactical look. That pebble grain is wild looking. I bet it provides serious traction.

Ned's Conymyds and the clean, nothing else needed look really balances this gun out. Very nice work gentleman. And the pictures ain't bad either. Congratulations on all your efforts.

Two things that really caught my eye were the treatments to the bottom of the slide stop and the hammer serrations.

This looks like a great CCW/duty pistol to me. Great work fellows!

Bill,
I have had the time to spend with this gun. Sitting here searching for words has been a chore as #1 was. Ned and John covered everything. The detail and execution is unexplainable. The thought of being able to carry this one has crossed my mind a few hundred times. :?

It's almost creepy how they go together.

In Part One, I posted of my drooling, and in my praises, forgot someone. You take great pics, Steve! We all apreciate them.
And even though they get us as close we will probably be to the gun/accessories; thank you for all the other work you do to make this happen.

Fantastic job on what looks to be an extremely well done 1911. It just turned out sweet!!!!. I like the look of polished slide flats with matt frame. Really like the grips and all the trick milling and metal work. Hell I like it all. Steve I too enjoy all your posts and hard work. Awesome blaster……

Steve,
The 'green splash' lighting on a few of the pics is cool. Ichiro uses a lot of red.
The background is cool, as in hi-tech, but perhaps several shades too light for this 'dark gun'.
I can't wait until I can actually 'feel' this one!
Great Pics of a Great Gun!

Steve, Very cool pics - like the "industrial" background appearance - a good offset to the guns appearance. John and Ned - REALLY cool looking piece it looks just different enough to stand out amongst a group of like type guns, but not so "spacey" as to turn off the more conservative types. I LIKE IT! :D

A note on #2's sights...

The "real sights" for #2 are at Trijicon for inserts. They weren't ready in time for photos, so I substituted black sights for the photos only. John called it to my attention - as he should have - he busted his butt to make up a custom front sight and drill it for an insert, and it mysteriously disappeared. Not to worry! It'll be "officially" done soon :D

Dan, I quoted your post and then for some reason it subscribed my statements to your post. When I tried to edit it to correct it, it deleted your post and my comments. Please accept my apologies. Dan Burwell was commenting on how difficult it was to take pictures of ones guns and how good and professional Steve Bailey's pictures were.

I concurred, stating that I wish I had half the skill of Steve both in photography and gunsmithing. I went on to say that I have a better camera, but I still suck. I especially love the waySteve uses ambient lighting, both natural and artificial to bring out the aesthetics of his subject. I also love the unique backgrounds and back drops Steve uses to help one focus on his subject.

Again I apologize to you Dan, I havent the figgiest idea what happened to your post or why wen i tried to quote you it subscribed my comments to you... I am very sorry.

Beautiful gun...what can I say that hasn't been already? But, I have an off-topic and maybe slightly silly question...where can I get one of those cool braided lanyard deals on the Strider? It looks like a handy way to carry some paracord.

John,
No problem, anyone who says they have never lost info to a computer is well...FOS.

I was really trying to give Steve some credit for his incredible photography. Guns are very, very difficult to take pictures of and Steve does an amazing job. Keep up the excellent work. It looks to me he could probably have yet another job if he ever retires the badge.

Oh yeah nice work on the gun guys. The leather is not to shabby for a PA guy :wink: .

Dan

Dan, it helps to use the focus on the camera and some light when you take gun pics and e-mail them to me :D

(Dan is my buddy, so I can make fun of him)

I'm coming in a little late on this thread, but I wanted to congratulate John, Ned, and Josh on one of the most beautiful packages I have ever seen..

Steveie, you are really getting good at this photography thing! Ichiro Nagata is gonna be jealous when he sees this work. Especially when he finds out that you're doing it in your garage :twisted:

It's an amazing group of artists that Ted has put together, and the one thing that strikes me is that there is no ego infighting going on here.. I like that, and am proud to be a part of it.

Lou
