Another several days and this one will be off to Glenrock Blue for a polished / matted blue, I'll be doing the prep work.... even though GB is the one place I trust to do that for me, they're kinda backed up. The barrel, hammer, and barrel bushing will get chromed.

Osage Orange FRAG grips-- I really dig this wood. Sometimes though the grain is so tight and the wood so yellow/orange that it's hard to see what you have. It really warms with age-- and sunlight. This set, I filled the grooves with modeling clay and put them in the window for a couple months, and you can see how much it darkens the wood where it was not masked, and brings out the character.

This 5-shot group probably won't impress National Match shooters but it does show the gun is very well zero'd at 28 yards. This is my fodder-grade handload, mixed brass, nothing too special. The best group I've fired with this gun sofar, a little better than this one, was with WW Ranger T JHP's (formerly Black talon).

Ned,

You are one of a kind, sir! Love the frag on the squared trigger guard. Little ol'skool meets new skool...

Can't wait to see the finished gun.

Way good shooting!

The Frag pattern and the squared trigger guard go quite well together.
