Rodgers Stainless Colt.....PICS!

Just in time for the Holidays, a stainless Colt for one of the short bus crew in Florida. Kart barrel, Baer grip safety, Davidson grips, Chuck Rogers golfballs, Legacy mainspring housing, modified Heinie rear sight.

Destined to be an every day carry and shot.....a LOT.

Beautiful blending as always. Another work of pistol art. What trigger was chosen?

Someday, I hope to be able to achieve a beavertail fit like that. Maybe on the next build......

Nicely done. I might have a couple questions for you sometime soon, if it would trouble you terribly.

Wow. The grip safety fit is stunning. And, being a new convert to the Heinie Ledge sights, I sure like that top end.

It appears to have lost some functionality of a stock Colt. There isn't a single edge left to shave with.

Another "Wow" gun.

(Sure wish I could get a radius on a curve like that slide stop.)

I hope they put the seatbelt on the dude on the short bus,he's gonna be spazzing out.Nice,clean piece of work again.

Is that Brown's safety?Last one I got had the pin hole peeking at you too,aggrevating because I like both his safeties and now they're whacked out.Anyway,beautiful as always Bob.

Rex, I had 2 of those Ed Brown safeties that had the top of the pin showing, sent them back and got an EGW and never looked back. The EGW feels like a bank vault door, and most Navy pilots could land an F-18 on the thumbpad!

Gorgeous work! That's the second one of yours that I've seen the Baer GS on. There's something about the way you've got it contoured that just says "PERFECT!"

Bob you always do great work, but for some reason that grip safety install looks better than any other I have seen. Beautiful gun.

The blend of the grip safety is flawless. It looks as if its just an extension of the frame.

The great ones dont do impossible things, they simply make the hard to do things look easy.

The look is nice enough, no doubt.

But after running the gun hard through a three day class, you'll realize its true beauty lies in the function of the hard use dehorn.
