    Jack did the nickle plating, the trigger has a piece of stethascope tube, and she has about 750 rds through her but have not had any practice ammo for 3 mo. My little carry  piece... Jim <><

    Thank You, Jack did my 32 also, and other than 5 short strokes with the 32, which was fine after cleaning the fp channel and putting some graphite in it, they both have worked perfect, combined over 1000 rds, and still going if I could find some 380 ammo. Jim <><

    I've still got 1 1/2 boxes of Hornady CD's, but don't want to use them for practice, Bart will save me some when it starts moving again, and thanks fellows for the compliments, I really like Jack's nickle plated work. Jim <><

    tell me about the grip panels, I think I just ordered the same ones off of e-bay but in black.

    also how did you apply the stethoscope tubing? is there anything to it other than just cutting it to fit and slipping it on?

    The grip panels are from www.tractiongrips.com, just stick on. I used silicone spray to the inside of the tube, slid it on, waited a couple hrs till it dried, then put a couple drops of super glue on either end. Haven't had a sore finger since. Jim <><

    Don at Traction Grips is an upright guy. I have his grips on my P3AT, on both mine and my wife's XDs, and I put some of his universal grips on my Ruger P95. I've not had a single problem with the grips coming loose either. You can order with confidence. I'll buy more from Don in the future.

    That's good to hear, I bought a set for my P3AT and if they workout as advertised, I will probably pick up a set for my Glock 19.

    Kind of what I was wondering(which is more durable? HC or NKL) not that it matters to me now anyways... just got done ordering a cheap blued one to get this done. Just couldn't find a chrome one local and all the sites and auctions are ridiculous right now.
