    Curious about the texture of the slides in the second pic - are they painted or the like?

The main line in this build was extreme weight reduction while maintaining all steel construction - metal was removed from all places possible and impossible.
    Rear sight is Ned's rendition of how it is supposed be done for one-handed manipulations. Combined with flattened top of the slide, it makes a big "hook" with very reliable engagement.
    Grip safety: I believe Ned holds a patent for this mod. Some folks - and Ned is one of them - have issues with traditional GS due to pivoting nature of it. When one tries to get a very high grip on the gun, it is possible to provide more upwards pressure on beavertail than forward pressure on the pad, and gun won't fire. Ned "splits" grip safety into two pieces so beavertail portion is static and doesn't move at all. This is how it looks on the gun


    RDS part is a proof of concept. The can is neutered - something to do with Michigan class III laws...He just thought that suppressor can be a carrier for RDS and built that mount. I haven't pursued getting a real can to test it out.

    I got to fondle that at SHOT...pretty cool. Ned does some really crazy stuff!

    And to think that, because of my dumb demands for a rail, this beauty has to be carried in kydex...
    Any leather holster makers here (cough, 5, cough, shot) who have Dawson compatible IWBs?
