My 1918 Colt that had at some point been heavily sanded/ buffed and chrome plated. I found the acrylic grips on ebay, and the image under it is from a photo shoot my wife had one of her best friends do for her, as a gift to me.
There are other pics from that shoot that show a lot more skin but I wanted to keep it classy. Haha.
One of the other pics is under the right grip (My avatar pic<)

Too bad the collector value is long gone on this pistol but it's action is smooth as butter and it shoots straight.

Its the ultimate unicorn gun. Rarest of the rare. Less than 6 of these made their way into the US and this is one of 2 in the stainless finish chambered in .45.

It is an italian hand finished gun called the Delta AR top gun.

Amazing piece.

Very cool. It almost looks like a CZ-52 at a quick glance.

Had Steve at Northeast Arms install a new FN 16" midlength 1:7 CHF barrel to replace the cheap barrel on my budget AR build. It’s my only AR so I figured why not go with an accurate barrel that will outlive me at the rate I take it to the range. Also had him pin and weld a new BCM Mod 0 compensator. Then I replaced the cheap bolt with a LMT bolt. Looks pretty good. Can’t wait to try it this weekend with some 55, 69 and 77 gr loads.

Steve and George say they get 1.5" groups with regular 55 gr loads. That’s plenty good for me!
That sounds about right. I've been shooting 55gr Prvi Partizan M193 out of it at steel hangers out at 100yards and with a sporting scope I'm hitting practically the same spot.

Wow! That’s also the same ammo I’ll be using.
I can’t friggen wait to shoot it! First time having a midlength gas system too so I’m interested to see how much different it is than my previous carbine barrel.
