Just wanted to share my build for 2022. Almost 7 months in the making.

There was something about the new Pro-cut model Sig launched that just caught my attention. I wanted the look without the jacked up price to look cool. So, rather than spend $2,000 for a factory run gun, I spent $2,400 to build this one Eek

This did cost more than I expected to spend but this gal ended up with more internal coolness that you just don’t get with the factory models. Slide upgraded with a Bar-sto match grade barrel and Gray Gun SS guide rod. Frame action tuned up with Gray Gun Custom Strut system, Short Reset Trigger Kit, and Enhanced Leverage System. All that AND the pleasure, relaxation, and pride by putting this together myself, well worth it… as sexy inside as outside Cool

Started with a 1989 no rail no tail frame refinished by CCR with their stainless look color.



I went with the MG 20 rounders and have named her Black Jack (20+1=21) Big Grin





In my humble opinion you have to appreciate the unique design of the Mec-Gar +2 extension. Again just this guys opinion but they look better matched to the gun than the factory mags.

That's a nice looking pistol.

I've never regretted spending more on a build than a complete gun.
I have complete guns that I replaced the internals with the same parts right after buying them.

Sweet!

And it is just the way you wanted it to be.

Let us know how it shoots.

Yup… range time scheduled for this weekend for Blackjack and a P220 that just got a Bar-Sto match barrel fitted as well. I will add to this post following her first trip to the range. Anticipate some up front work to zero the Romeo Pro followed by flawless performance.

Been there, done that.

Wanted a fancy Glock. Didn't care for what was available. By getting each piece as it went on sale, I was able to get the look and feel I wanted.

Different grip angle, grip reduction, brass plug backstrap, Salient trigger, RMR, box fluted barrel... The only part that was made by Glock is the magazine tube. Wink

Mine also took quite some time to put together, even though I call it my $1,500 Black Friday gun.

Hey, that came out really nice. Nice job!

Gotta be satisfying to build it with the specific features you want.

Looking forward to a range report.

Tell me about those SIG grips. They appear to fit tightly to the frame and are nicely contoured. Are they plastic or G10? How do they compare to standard factory plastic grips?

The work really paid off well.
As long as it shoots as good as it looks, you have a super nice pistol.


Too many SIGs .. ... Nah not really

Got the grips from Sig web store. They are G10 and definitely more aggressive than the factory plastic.

Thanks for the info. They do look good with those mag bases.

That's impressive. Although a single jagged hole is expected, I look forward to the range report.

Range day was delayed for Bar-Sto to tweak the barrel a bit.
