Guys--
I recently had a project completed by Damon and wanted to share. He did an absolutely beautiful job on my Kahr. Here is a link to the photos. They may take a bit to load.

Sgt,

Very, very nice. Hey Sgt, did you have a chance to take it to the range and if so, how it run?

Enjoy your new family member ...

Thanks Ralph, Everybody, biggrin.gif

That camera deffinately shows everything at its best! I can't take all the credit...Ralph did the wood himself. It was a fun project and turned out great...didn't really want to send it back when it was done. I never did get to shoot it though. We did a bunch of work to it including:

Drum Slot Chamfers
EZ pull spring kit
Fitted 28 frame
Selector Bolt Lock with our Milled Pawl
Lyman Adj. Sight...rivets came out perfect!
Rounded the fins to resemble 21 style
Modified mag catch.
Pinned ringsight.
Install SBR and compliance mark
Polish and blue
Tooless frame removal

I am sure that there are a couple of things that I can't remeber off the top of my head.

I am very pleased that Ralph is happy with the new member of his family. It was a pleasure to work on his project.

Damon

Guys, thanks for the great words. I think I have a winner now. I took it shooting about four different times. I'm estimating that I put maybe 500 rounds through her with only a very few misfeeds. Most of those were attributed to the new Kahr L drum. The sticks are flawless. It continues to be very accurate, even with the shorter barrel. I forgot to mention that when I first sent it to Damon, it wouldn't shoot at all and the receiver was stuck to the frame.

Dan, I'll post some details of the 28 and the M-1 this weekend. Someday, I'll need to get you to make me a set of wood.

Damon, Ralph

where are the SBR lines was looking into doing that to mine and couldn't get over messing up the recever with extra lettering. thought those had to be big and 1/8 deep in frame.

selector bolt lock, is that a kit?

Nice toy Ralph, thanks for sharing.

BB,

The marks are under the barrel...infront of the foregrip. I can't remeber the exact size off the top of my head but they are no where near 1/8 inch deep. Tom did the marks/installation, would have to ask him to be sure.

Sorry but the selector bolt lock is hand fitted to each gun and is not available as a drop in kit. We manufacture a special one piece milled pawl for this. It is much nicer and more reliable than the two piece modified part that is often used. They are also hardened. This is one of the most poplular modifications for a 1927.

Thanks again for all the good words.

Best,
Damon

Please Tom,

Mistake after mistake after mistake. I had to walk you through and teach you everything. At one point You were crying (with acutal tears) that you were so overwhelmed with the custom guns. You did not do all the work...you didn't even blue them. If you were a truthfull person then we would still be doing business. You would think after getting blacklisted by Gun Parts, screwing up and losing a good account with Kahr and filing bankruptcy that you would learn. Just too much to expect I guess. You won't be in business long...you are drowning in debt and don't have what it takes. You are in screw people to survive mode...and it is all coming to a head now.

Best of luck with it all,
Damon
