Those grips look great, the gun is really coming together nicely. Doing multiple pictures isn't hard move the cursor over and click on the picture icon again.

Are those grips smooth or is there some kind of texture to them? I can't really tell from the pics? They're nice looking!!

Hmmmm. I'll have to check the difference between my computer and my iPad. I pretty much do this forum only on my iPad. I've tried to hit the "Manage attachments" button after I already have one pic in the queue and it just seems to replace the first one. Oh well.

They're smooth as glass. I haven't shot it yet, but my hands seem to stick to what I assume is either urethane or lacquer. They aren't slippery like a waxed surface, they feel almost like plastic. As in squeaky. There are a few very small natural imperfections in the burl that are not filled in by the clear coat. You can see them in the first pic. But, that's wood. Things like grain do show a bit, no matter how highly finished the wood is.

I'll let y'all know if there seems to be any control issues. I seriously doubt I'll have any trouble with grip. The gun feels really good in my hands and I have to say, that is one drop dead sexy pistol!:cool:

I sure agree with sexy! Be sure to hang on tight when you shoot it! Does anybody else smell barbecue?

My Heinie sights came in so I went to a gun smith to install them. He busted my balls about putting on the MSH myself. He said one like that needs to be properly fitted. He did show me how the ETM mag was rubbing a bit...anyway, I pled stupid. He's going to put the heinies on and make sure the MSH is proper. He also looked at my WC ETM magazine and said that was the best. So, a little pride was salvaged.:eek:

It's better to swallow your pride and have the MSH fitted properly then to run into problems down the road, don't forget to post the mandatory pictures when it's all together and back.
