Pics of Caspian based pistols

OK, lets see them. Below is a .40 S&W. Plans are to go to 10mm sometime this year.

Is that the factory checkering, or did someone else do it?

harley 45: That is the factory checkering from Caspian, 20 lpi.

38 Super Combat Commander: Mikey did most of the work, with a little help from some friends. I got it from him in a weak moment . The stocks are marbled ebony, smooth contoured from S&A.

Not a real good picture, will try to get a better one. Added fiber optic front sight, sight by EGW, installed by Bob Hunter of Hunter Custom. Bob did a real fine job, looks great. Hopefully will have a pic this weekend.

Is the checkering an option or standard?

Here is a pic of my Caspian race gun in .38 super. This was built by Wayne Berquist in FL and has been a super reliable and accurate pistol.

Here is mine.

It's only a scan and it's a spectacular 1911 but the image doesn't look as nice as your pics above.

(Note to self: stop spending money on 1911s and buy a decent digital camera)

This one was done by Dave Lauck and it is his Professional Package:



I recently just got past the 5000 round mark and am doing a range report shortly.

I better weigh-in on this thread. This is the little (Commander), big (45ACP) brother to John's 40 cal. If I had not built this one he would never have talked me out of that one!

Okay, here is a Caspian based Officer's ACP size frame with a Commander length slide in stainless. Features are MMC rear sight, Wilson beavertail & thumb safety, Caspian checkering, Ed Brown checkered mainspring housing, Bar-Sto barrel. It will be finished in Rocky Mountain Arms' Bear Coat after testing & final prep.

Timing, it was all timing. He had the wants, and I had what he wanted. That .40 sure is sweet!

Here is a photo of my steel gun. It was built from a blown up IPSC 45 gun. Now she is a 9mm for fun and speed.

Yes, to my taste the "Caspian" engraving would look better with a slightly smaller font. However, I do like the company crest at the rear of the slide, near the trigger.

I wonder if it's possible to get a slide with that crest only. Also, is custom engraving in lieu of the Caspian name available?

Hmmmm . . .
