Default SALIENT 2011 LIMITED SIGHT TRACKER BUILD

Rob Melhorn has been my gunsmith for ages. Since he moved full time to Salient Arms International to build their 19/2011 guns, I had to bite the bullet, (pun intended) and have him build me an ISPC/USPSA/WCSC gun. I had ideas from a bunch of guns I liked from SVI, Cheely Custom Gunworks, Akai guns etc, and SSE'd a frame from Chuck B @Shooters Connection on the 28th of December to make the deadline. I pieced the parts together from friends on Brian Enos Forums and more parts from shootersconnection.com.

Parts list consists of:

STI LWDC frame
STI Unique Slide
Bomar BMCS rear sight
Dawson F/O front sight
Schuemman Hybrid 5" .400 barrel
Extreme Engineering Light speed trigger group
SVI stainless Xtra wide left side Ambi Safety
Ed Brown Stainless Beavertail
Commoniolli Frame saver tungsten Guide Rod
SV wide body ITS trigger system w short flat insert
Dawson Ice magwell
Si Ca grip treatment

Gun is currently at APW/Cogan for Hard Chrome, then back to Salient for Logos and reassembly. pics to come when I get her in my arms.

Thanks Everyone. I'm very pleased with this. Salient is moving to Vegas, and Rob's moving with them. It's gonna be sad to lose him, as he was down the street from me, but nori have an excuse to lose money!

Very cool indeed. Thank you for the pics. The slide work with the fluted barrel showing through looks great.

Thanks all. Comes back from APW hard chrome Monday/Tuesday. Then goes out for logos. Contemplating having the barrel polished and TiN'ed. YOLO!

It just got back from hard chrome, but it still needs logos. I should have it in my hands in 2-3 weeks. Will update pics then
