Thanks! Hard chromed slide, barrel, take down pin, and slide stop bar. LaserLyte rear sight and fiber optic front. A little light etching near the muzzle. (A little too light, actually.) It all started when my daughter & son-in-law gave me the rear sight laser. Then I discovered you can't beat the rear sights off an XD.

Thanks again! TinMan, you wouldn't want to borrow a shiny old ugly thing like that. Man, since the forum posted a photo of it on Facebook, it's drawn a lot of criticism! More folks like it than not but the haters are really ugly about it. I think they should remember a saying that one of the motorcycle parts site uses: "Shared passion, individual style."

Where I come from they used to say, "if you can't say something nice...". Looks good to me Longslide10. Been thinking to do the same thing to my little pocket carry (Kahr P380).

I have four words for you: stainless steel guide rod

I forget where I bought mine, but it is smoother than the stock unit and, being solid rather than hollow, adds a tiny bit of weight up front, reducing muzzle flip by .0001%.

They do porting, too. I thought it might help my little firecracker P-40. Haven't had a chance to take it out since I got it back.
