I'm really excited, my new STI slide and frame finally showed up. I'll be using this gun for IPSC limited class once it's all done. I had wanted an STI Edge, but building it myself (with a little help) should save me a few hundred bucks over just buying an Edge off the shelf. It'll be cheaper but that's not really the point here. Mainly I just like working on guns and this will be a fun project.

I'm going to rely on a guy here in my area with a lot more experience than me to do some of the more tricky stuff like fitting the barrel, milling for Bo-Mars, and a trigger job (If you see this Doc, e-mail me I'm ready to go). Everything else I should be able to do myself.

So far I've installed the ejector, beavertail, and ambi-thumb safeties. Also the reverse plug was quite a bit oversize, so that had to be fitted as well. I filled in the bottom grip screw holes with epoxy because they serve no purpose other than to just have the bottom diamond's appearance match the top. Also since the gun is going to be all black, that will sort of match the look better.

Here's a couple of pics of what I've got so far. The camera and lighting suck, so apologies for that. It's pretty ugly right now but I know it'll be nice when I'm done.
