Always lusted after a Pachmayr Combat Special. I wish someone made a modern version of the beavertail. If so I would build a tribute gun in that style.

Is the button head on the slide stop indicative of a new larger pin installed on the factory Colt lever? One piece pressed in or two pieces threaded together (pin and cap)?

The slide stop pin is pressed in to the lever and replaceable.

Photo of the day... more of a shooting related vs. shop related photo. Morning range session with friends as they practice for Bianchi Cup also served as a good opportunity to confirm sights and test a few changes I’ve made to this 9mm Commander. I was even able to squeeze out a 454 on the practical… Bianchi is no joke, if you want a skills test that's it.

What are you measuring? Radial lug slot depth?

Photo of the day... a bit more measuring…

Also had a chance this weekend to play with the recently introduced SI Magwell from my pal Stan Chen (Stan Chen Customs). This will be a perfect addition to the 9mm RO Operator that I am setting up for IDPA ESP. The machining and quality of this part are second to none and exactly what we’ve come to expect from Stan. These photos show the part dropped onto my RO Operator, the fit and interior contours of the SI Magwell match the existing shape exceptionally well. Now all I have to do is find the time to checker the gun, change the safeties, and swap out the sights... but at least the mag-well is taken care of.

Photo of the day... getting ready to machine the frame rails and a few things that make measuring and machining a bit easier.
