Caspian from my Vickers Course




I had the pleasure of taking LAV's pistolsmithing course last fall, finally have this one all wrapped up. I had some help from Dave Erikson of Condition One with the checkering, the front sight and some other "fine tuning" tips!

Shoots great, no problems in the first 500 rounds!

Clean, very clean. Is LAV a fan of grips that cover up the mainspring housing pin? Just asking because I you have those on your pistol.

Thanks!

Not sure on LAV's stance on grips. I rounded the MSH and matched the grips, just looked better to me.

Ok, thanks. Again, nice job. I bevel or round off the bottom of my housings and even a touch of the frame also. Cleaner look to me.

Most flat bottomed grips that I have seen dont have a cut out for the msh pin.


Gun looks great, BTW
