This is a discussion on Post a pic of your gun! within the Guns and Knives forums, part of the Everything But Cigars category; I carry this on my property if i'm going to be far from the house (I live in the woods)...
VERY nice, VZ grips are fantastic, but those rayskin grips look great as well... I'm a big fan of longslides (especially if they have extended dustcovers as well)... Is that a jeweled magwell I see? Did Fusion do that semi-skeleton hammer? Never seen one like that before... The stealth look on the slide is great too, leaves the possibilities endless for custom engraving later.
Thank you, and yes it is a jeweled magwell. Bob didn't build this one, I purchased the frame, slide and barrel (sort of a "kit") and had my local smith Marianne Carniak build the rest out. The hammer is from Caspian and it's made from Stainless Damascsu (I just love damascus). Slide is Ionbond DLC and the frame is Robar Np3 coated. I know DLC is good stuff but the Robar is far superior , I almost want to redo some things on this one but have had Marianne just start a new build and the new one is going to take up all my recources.
Pheasant and a Winchester Model 12; it doesn't get more classic American hunting than this. The, 16 gauge, Winchester Model 12 was my birthday present to myself last year. Its born on date is 1955; just like mine. Boy,it is much better shape at 57 than I am.
