Of course, Dave didnít forget the inner workings and gave everything a thorough once over inside too. He did his reliability package and replaced parts as listed below. The trigger is an unbelievably crisp 3.75 break with NO uptake or creep whatsoever. Absolutely perfect.
We switched the sights to my favored two color tritium mix, and switched the trigger to my ďstandardĒ STI long carbon trigger, and added ambi safeties.
Dave is a hugely talented gunsmith, but perhaps one of his greatest skills is knowing what the customer wants to end up with, and figuring out ways to incorporate that into the project, NOT simply plugging in what he can do, or what HE wants. I could have gone to a gunsmith who would have fit my project into what his outlook was, or his ďstyleĒ but Dave made MY desires come to life by taking the time to understand MY vision and letting it grow into a finished project. The Beastbob is perfect in my eyes, and I canít thank Dave enough for making it happen. This is something that will be in my family hopefully for generations to come. Itís something that will bring happy memories of shooting with Dad into my kids minds and hearts long after Iím gone. I hope my grandchildren will hear stories of how their grandpa owned this pistol as they learn to shoot with it. You canít put a pricetag on stuff like that.
Anyway, itís late, and Iím rambling, so hereís the list of what Dave did, and new parts that he used (aside from the EB MSH housing that I sent).
I hope you enjoy the pics, and again, THANK YOU DAVE!
