I just finished up the pistol I've been working on.
Nothing left to do now but fine tune it.

Pac, that turned out really handsome.

I assume that lever on the left side near the hammer is the safety. What's the silver button on the left side behind the trigger?

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out myself.

Andy, yes. The lever by the hammer is a thumb safety. It stands out so much because it is an extended one. The idea is to rest your thumb on it while shooting (I'm rt ahnded).
And the other lever is the takedown lever/slide release. And it also funtions to hold the slide open after the last shot. It's a multi-tasker.

Not a problem
But just so you know, I came >this close< to saying I didn't know what they did.

Nice work on the gun pac! Himself was looking at the photos over my shoulder and said "that looks really good". The man does not compliment freely! Good job.

Very nice, pac. Thank you for sharing your pics. They are so crystal clear and show up so well against the blue background!

Thanks CG, thanks Cheryl.
I have other colored backgrounds. Do you want to see more, lol.

I wish I had started this 15-20 years ago. I'd have a shop right now. I love doing this stuff. Laws being what they are though I can only do it for myself.

Beautiful result pac. I was going to ask if you were a Smitty but I guess your last sentence answered my question.
