Welcome to the group cundiff5535, that is truly a work of art. Am I safe in assuming that you are a professional gunsmith?

Welcome to the group.

I just love the two tones and the Browning Practical is one of my favorite guns. This looks a lot like it. If that was your goal, you did an outstanding job.

I am not up to speed on forum rules so I will not get into my cerakote company as I do not want break them within my first few posts to the board.

If I can talk about this without being a forum vendor, I would love to go into detail on what I do!

Anyone have any thoughts/know what the specifics are in regard to talking about work that a members company does?
As much as we've been hoping for a forum representative (mod/admin) to show themselves they continue to remain elusive. Maybe they feel that a bunch of old farts talking about their toys are harmless.

Seriously, I've been all over this forum and tried to read everything I can find on forum dos and don'ts and can't see where this is addressed so.... I would say try it, worse case I think a simple apology would fix everything.

Nice big brother to the hipower

Those front cuts with the ball mill really give her a classic look. You have a lot to be proud of.

Why the conversion to series 70?
