By the way that doesn't look like a Sig single stack

Is that a CCO or Commander? I think my eyes are playing tricks on me.

It's a CCO, I had them build it with a short pad trigger, otherwise it's their "base level" build. The grips are VZ simonich gunners.

Nice!!!

How do you like the finish? Curious because I have a NN longslide on order in 10mm with the Nickel Boron finish.

So far so good. It looks great and I expect it to wear really well but only time will tell. I have a long slide as well but not in 10mm, that will be a sweet pistol.

Thanks. I'll check with you in a few months. It probably won't be too late to change my order if your doesn't wear well. Do you know who does the finish for GI?

I was reviewing this thread and I see my Feb, '14 post, the pics have disappeared, so here they are--





The MSH has no retaining pin-- so I could round-butt it to my heart's content. Angled slots in the frame, a lug and a protruding pin on the MSH cam it into place under the pressure of the hammer strut pushing on the mainspring.



The rounded butt and the recoil spring plug made from a 5/8" grade 5 Allen bolt.



From the top:


Hope that's rounded enough 'cause it's gonna have to do.... for now.... in the process of doing this one I came up with a way to do more next time. There is also an extreme girth reduction to the MSH.



Rear of the slide. Shield Driver rear sight, made here.



Bidness end. That's a .50 GI, 230-grain solid copper HP. They do 1000 out of a 5", this barrel is about 5/8" shorter.


The magwell was made by me from a piece of 4130. It's not huge in outside dimensions but looks pretty big in this bottom view. No width or height added to the pistol.

All we need is a grip safety that resembles a pineapple grenade handle.

So cool! Who are you!?! Awesome mods that I have not seen before. That is truly an incredibly unique .50 GI!

Ned Christiansen is a top notch gunsmith in Michigan but known nation-wide for 1911's and AR's. Although I have never met him, I have read and heard much about him throughout the years even before I moved up to MI. He created the Frag pattern that GI and VZ uses. He is also inventor of the MOACKS for AR's.

Just picked up the Guncrafter Industries Blackout Frag 10mm from George at Gunslingers this weekend.

Bottom pic is the business ends of the 10mm Frag and .50GI (also purchased from George several years ago).
