Looks great! Just out of curiosity, what is the Open Class typically shooting now? Back when I was shooting, it was .38 super. I've never heard of the centimeter round.
Just blast it, and cerrakote it looks decent. Hides stuff and you don't have to worry about scratching it.I'm basically finished with the comp. As you can see, the 'flats' on a STI aren't, and I'm still debating if I want to invest the time to get them true, or if I just want to go lazy and bead blast the whole thing. I'm probably going to Durablue the whole thing as I don't have access to traditional hot bluing tanks which is the only reason I might go for that 'real pretty shine' you see coming out of some of the custom shops. But then the first time I scratched it I'd cry. It is going to be a shooter after all.

Oh...and this is probably the last full profile comp I make. Trash cans are SO much easier...
The red dot sights have come a long way in the last 5-10 years or so (remember the Doctor Dot? What a POS that was...). This sight is specifically designed to mount on the slide of a semi-auto. According to Trijicon it is designed for military/law enforcement/competitive shooting environments. I normally would have just made a custom mount for it, but I saw this mount/night-sight combo and wanted to try that.Very nice , it's Ben a while sense I researched red dot sights , can that one take the slide movment and stay sighted in ?
