Default My new Caspian Damascus

After over a year of waiting for parts my first Caspian is done. Most of the wait time was for the Damascus slide and the Barstow bull barrel. All parts are Caspian with exception of the barrel, guiderod, springs and ambi safety. The frame to receiver fitting was expertly done by Gary at Caspian, all other work done by Dave Lawver of Dave's Metalworks. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Now I gotta go and shoot it.

Great looking pistol, I have been working up the nerve to get that slide for my own custom 1911.

thanks for the compliments.. OTD price was a little over 3K. It has the best parts I could buy and hand built by a master gunsmith. To me, it is now priceless.

That pistol is very pleasing aesthetically. You did a great job by setting off the Damascus pattern through the geometric and solid form of the VZ grips. Jealous and definitely considering this as a future project. Need a range report!

The only problem is the computer generated perfect print.

The slide to frame fit is flawless.
