My baby has come home. - Paint It Black — LiveJournal
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
My baby has come home.
After more than a year and a half of delays and more than a bit of frustration and worry, my baby has finally come home.

SIG Sauer P220, customized to honor the 5th Special Forces Group (which my father was part of in Vietnam). Highlights include:

  • Custom serial number
  • SF crest engraved on top of slide, along with the motto
  • Tritium sites
  • Rail system

Rather than spam people with photographs, I'm putting up a few thumbnails that link to the larger photographs.

This is the face of a very envious Vlad.

We should go hit the range some time, Vlad.

Other than the sights, are there any other performance upgrades to it? Match barrel? Trigger job? etc.

P220s are beautiful. I'd of gotten one, but WAY out of my price range!

Anyone knows a P220 doesn't need much for internal mods,

I have a slick 220ST and I'm looking for the scope rail kit that fits on what looks like a tapered weaver rail down under. Scope rail kit seen in the Triple X movie, the guy on the balcony has one.

I never did get in on that group buy... things have been too busy for me lately. Shame, really.

Pity. Last I heard, the fellow that was working with my father has stepped down (I believe he has gone active again and is out in the woods, so to speak) and the price has gone up $250 over the last group buy.

So they're doing another series of it, then?

Impressive. Meaningful. Touching.

Out of curiosity, what would a super-soaker full of Nair do to a fursuit? Plans for Midwest? :P
