Hello. Quit it! You're going to cost me more money! Seriously, a very pretty pistol.

Best.

Not fair, Dane. That's like forcing a child to stand outside a candy store for two hours, staring through the window in a driving rain.

She's a beauty though... if you ever need some off-site storage.... heheh...

Hello, Dane. Have any beautiful pictures of wonderful HPs that you've done your glorious work on? (Now, that's as nice, sickeningly sweet, assey-kissey, as I know how to do!)

Seriously, if you do, I kind of wish you'd post 'em. Just puts a bit more bounce in my step.

Best.

OK, since it is a royal pain in the butt to send guns across the border, what will it take for you to spend a month or two in my basement and make my guns look this pretty?

Free room and board? Home-cooked meals every night? Wine and women? (OK, with respect to Mrs. Burns - you'll have to supply the women :wink: )

Shane, buddy :grin: I built a number of High Power "SpecOp" style guns some time ago. They were cheap dates. Use to chop a Brown beavertail and weld it on the frame with a hand cut thumb safety. But that was 6 years ago and the only HPs I have now are my "toys" that I fool with during Sims classes.

Sorry no digital pics..actually no picts at all of those guns. I have a HP around here I just might make up for you when I get time. How we gonna get it across the boarder my friend :grin:

PS I have a couple dozen more pictures I ma going to post on this thread..as time goes by.

Dane, I have almost bitten my gag in half. This is even crueler than "CHINESE WATER TORTURE." Those are very nice toys. Regards, Richard

LOL, I didn't say it was a Heinie "GUN" just that it had the scallops :grin: The obvious high level of craftsmanship gives it away. In fact, I like all the guns, just the Kimber stood out in particular. Great stuff :grin:

The bunny comment was just a joke. My poor little modem just can't keep up sometimes :lol:

Dane,
Can you elaborate or email with specs on the 8th gun from the bottom, the Kimber with rear slide serrations and scallops?

That would be Dr. Bob's stainless Kimber Pro Carry FED package with scallops, STI stainless beavertail, cut and blended, melt job, barrel recrown, Heinie's and some serious refit and refinish work, reliability job, Hogue presentation grips. Normal Kimber rebuild from my shop. Costs? Just over a $1000. Not the very best work I do and not all the detailing but enough that I would not be ashamed of useing it myself or send it out to a paying customer.

We'll get to hear what the owner thinks of it early next week I suspect. You listening Bob?

1000 seems like a bargain for that. Very nice :smile: I think the grips really make the gun stand out. Definitely an eye catcher.

I guess David D and I like the same stuff :smile:

Dane, how is this gun different from your 'best grade' guns? What additional work would you do to turn this into what YOU consider to be 'best grade'? Thanks :grin:

You know Dane, the simpler things in life can also be the finer things....That package on a cut down ultra compact along the size of a C&S Adventurer would surely make a fine addition to my working guns group? I think I see a new Burns gun in my future..

Dane...glad to see my pistols are finally finished! :grin:

Ya know, I like that green gun. Also, the 9x23 up top. Real sweet stuff. When I take delivery of all of them tomorrow, I will start the testing. :smile:

My best grade guns will have a BarSto barrel and tool steel trigger system, Vedecki trigger as a start. Matching metal work, if specified, on the front strap, back strap, choose serrations, scallops or checkering and a set of either custom NM sights, Heinies or Bomar clones. The detail work is what defines best grade but you have to start with the basics to get there.

For the curious $3000 will get you a best grade gun from BCP built on your frame. I don't see that price changing in the near future for a 5" 1911 in 45 cal. I am currently backlogged some where between 4 and 5 years on those kinds of projects. Others, like the Kimber we are talking about only months.

Bruce? Of the 3 and 1/2 green guns which one is it that you like :grin:

I am boxing them up as I type and I want your favorite one on top when you open this tomarrow!

You know, the GREEN one :grin:

Really, when I first saw that color...didn't like it at all. Now, it would be my pick of the litter. Maybe I am just becoming more refined with age? Pack 'em anyway you can, I will sort through them to find what I like :smile:
