Heading out to its new home this week, this Full House KGB 45, Brushed Blued Flats - Matte Hardchrome - Beautiful Challis Grips. Built for a great client that really, mostly, cut me loose on this one outside that flat trigger

Very, very nice work! Interesting aesthetics and features. A bit of retro with the chamfered hammer hole and stippled top strap. I've never seen the stippling carried onto the rear sight, but then again I don't think I've ever seen that type sight on a gun with a stippled top strap. All in all an elegant piece. The case adds to the total appeal.

Is that a longitudinal dovetail front? Whose thumb safety and slide stop? Holster maker?

Front DT is normal Novak with a Blended sight (Yost/Harrison Blank), Thumb Safety is a slightly molested Chen unit, Slide stop started as a 10-8, Holster is from Milt Sparks.

Thanks, the Rear sight blended to the slide was a call up from this Kimber I built 7-8 years ago. Added stippling to the slide top per the customer's want for an 'old school' look with modern amenities

Good Job. The two tone is classic

Holy smokes Karl. I invite you here and you do this :-)

That gun is awesome! When you stipple something you really go for it-- I love that and how it runs over the rear sight. Tell the truth now-- was there a teeny bit of hesitation because that's not usually done and you were worried someone might say "ew"? Well for my part I'm saying the opposite of "ew" whatever that is--- "wow" I guess. Good on ya for doing it, doubts or no.... and so very nicely done.

Impressive accoutrements too. Good stuff all around.

Thanks all, and Yeah, Ned, I shot a fair amount of ammo thru this one before 'committing' to those sights and where they were haha. I like the look, and first did it on That Kimber on my website (started as a 10-8 rear sight), I started in like usual dehorning the corners one might run into and find uncomfortable when manipulating the slide, then poof, most of the sight was gone! I will be doing more this way in the future, as I appreciate the look and feel, hopefully I am not the only one and some folks buy it but if not at least I had fun getting there :-)

I'm glad Ned talked you into coming over here, I've followed your work on Addicts for quite some time. Matter of a fact I purchased that 1985 stainless Colt from you that's lurking around your shop somewhere.
