    Top view…. This is not really a full custom, but—I thought it merited the logo.


    A little bit of a magwell job. Frontstrap checkering had to be done over the existing vertical serrations it came with. Sometimes this works, sometimes not….. in this case the existing serrations were very well centered and consistent. I checkered at the exact same LPI they were at—which came out at 17 .


    Fiber optic, per request. Front sight is made from scratch (prehard 4130). I wanted to have one that was less snaggy than what’s available and maybe more durable—even at the expense of less light having a path to the FO shaft. In the end—I think it works at least as well as those available and is much more durable. The sight is T-slotted in from the front and cross-pinned with two 1/16 split pins.


    Before refinish. Finish is Brownells Baking Laquer over manganese phosphate on the steel parts, BL only on the aluminum parts. Yes, I kinda would have preferred a re-anodize but with few reliable sources, and considering time, and money—we didn’t do it. Anyway there is still plenty of anodize left where it really matters, like rails and feedramp. The grip safety is an aluminum one from EGW and the MSH is the plastic factory original—here again I cut the checkering in to match the original serrations which came out to something 18.6 LPI. Gave it a nice radius at the bottom, checkering stopped short to go easy on clothing. This also makes it very comfortable to handle.

    Well, I could not stand it. The XTac was very muzzle heavy. I found something else.

    Vickers Elite Commander 4.25" with a barrel bushing. Just like the 5" EXCEPT, No front serrations



    I like the Commander so much, I may get rid of the 5", VE, Blk/FDE, 9mm



    POW-MIA,
