Plan is to start out with a custom one for me, then eventually build three more for my kids (for when they come of age for the 45acp).

Thanks!

Slide question

Bro's,

Just like to be informed if Caspian frames and slides are more malleable than STS of Spain and IRON SIDE of Korea? I'd be very thankful for any info anyone can provide.

Here is my newly refinished, Duracoat isn't quite cured .38 Super.




Here is the frame after it's initial coating.

My thoughts exactly. I love the solid trigger and clean slide. Awesome.
Would you mind explaining those grips? It looks like a race ready frame with modified grips that were originally meant for a magwell? Do it yourself?

Grunt and yellowv,

Thanks for the kind words. I debated at length whether or not to border and flattop/serrate the slide with this project. I think that "less is more" was appropriate for this gun.

The frame was milled for a Heinie magwell, and the grips are VZ Carbon Fiber stocks that I purchased from Yost-Bonitz. I milled them to fit over the mounting hardware on the magwell. The grips have just a bit of texture to them and feel great in the hand.

Regards,
Dave

entry gun




She shoots head plates at 25 yrds without a hitch and is tight as a bank vault.

I have put a little over a grand through her and no malfunctions yet.

I have built a lot of Caspians over the years and I am still building on them today, they are truly great platforms for Match or Carry. This one is checkered front & back 25 Lines Per Inch...







Here's a link to a few more pics:

This is Lucky Lady, my IPSC race gun. Caspian frame, Springer slide, tons of custom work, by Otto, my gunsmith. I'm a lefty as is Otto, so there are some lefty specific features.

I really, really like the way the comp fits, shoe. You and Otto gotta be happy. What's the function of the unusual flange above the safety on the right side? And tell me about the mag release.

Thanks, nice pistol.

The thumb shield on the right side is so I can ride the safety without coming into contact with the slide. The right side safety paddle is large, the left side small (because I'm a lefty). The mag release is operated by the side of my trigger finger. This gun carries it's name engraved on the slide "Lucky Lady". I always wanted a lucky lady to accompany me to the matches, so now one does. Kinda like WWII nose art on planes (except no images of scantily clad women).

Otto is one of the best "unknowns" out there. I saw one of his blasters for the first time 20 years ago. Gotta a love a pistolsmith who isn't afraid to weld!
