    Anthony – A GREAT frame. I have mic’d a few of hole spacings and width/depth dimensions and all were within specifications – unlike the last ones I bought from one of your competitors. The checkering on the front strap was uniform and consistent, and I know how brittle stainless can be and how much harder to checker it can be; the checkering on the front strap was uniform and consistent and looks and feels great. Compared to the cost of having a “bare” frame checkered, this frame is a steal. The entire frame is very well executed. I’m very happy and will be ordering more. Thanks again!

    This frame is a work of art. As received, it had some oil and crud on it, but once wiped down, revealed an absolute thing of beauty. I could find no machine marks anywhere, no scratches, no flashing, no burrs… the holes I checked with pin gauges were spot on, I didn’t check all of them, but I checked most of them. The sides were bead blasted as were some other areas. Mine was cut for a .25 radius beavertail, which isn’t really clear in the description. I bought the frame and measured it before buying the beavertail. The frame is solid and the front strap checkering is very nicely done. Everything fit perfectly too, no monkeying around with tight mainspring rails, or plunger tube holes crooked… The trigger rails were slightly undersized, as it should be for making a perfect fit. I’ve messed with a lot of different steel, stainless and aluminum frames, and this one is top of the line. I decked mine on a mini-mill, and I believe it was around 0.013 oversize. I cut the rails with a stealth arms jig, which was a little more work than an aluminum frame, but only took a little while longer. It also took a while to get the slide lapped in, but the result, even after thousands of punishing 10mm rounds, is still smooth as glass and no rattle at all. I built this frame into a 6 inch slide 10mm. I usually go through 400-500 rds per range visit because the pistol works so well, and is very balanced. Would buy again, and cannot recommend highly enough.
