Wow! That Mil-Spec has been stepped up! An interesting gun for sure. Lots of great details to take in. That crease/ledge on the slide is a nice touch.

The spring plug is neat too

Gorgeous. I love EVERYTHING you did to that pistol. Grips match, arrows designs, love it.

Beautiful work as everyone on here expects to see when you post pics. How many breaks do you have to take while milling all those golf balls to keep from having boredom set in? I could see it being very easy to loose attention and mess it up.

Golf balls, Chen mag well, dark cerakote, lowered thumb safety, Rogers sights... looks like something I might have speced out. I'd certainly be proud to own it. Magnificent.

Thin grips?

Gorgeous! I particularly like the hammer profile. So subtle that it sort of hides amongst the other details. What hammer did you start with?

Huh.
Mine doesn't look like that!

Curious - what color is that?

What an incredible build! Very slick slide work, I dig how you tucked away the slide stop notch, but machined a little indicator golfball.
