New Kimber Micro Carry 380 w/ serratations on top of slide






Made a fixture to serrate the slide top (30 LPI) which I think adds a custom feel to it. I also beveled the bottom edges of the slide for a smoother look.

Very nice, Grady.
Next time, please take a picture of your setup. Did you do it in a manual mill? What kind of tool do you use to cut the grooves? Did you blast the finish afterwards?

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks for all the nice compliments and welcomes. I had been wanting to modify this micro for some while, just needed to design a fixture first.
