I milled the frame from a stainless casting with a few existing holes. I had to do quote a bit to the frame.

This is how it currently sits. Custom Caspian slide, Schuemann barrel, Ed Brown internals (may swap a few out for EGW) and Pachmyer American Legend grips. I did all the work myself.

The lower I found is a Quentin Laser, which is basically the same as a POF lower. The guy hasn't gotten back to me in a couple days.

For me personally, I can't get past the grip angle on glocks, and I am still slightly wary of the "safe action" trigger for Iwb carry.  Also, the thickness on their carry models are still kind of high.

I like the melt job on your 27. Did you do that yourself?

I ended up with a PF9 due to how thin and light it is, and the true DAO trigger. 7+1 is nice too.

I'm in CA so carrying IWB isn't even a possibility. Definitely something to consider though for when I move out of the state.

I did all the work on it myself. Mainly flushed the barrel with the slide and really crowned at eleven degrees then polished. I also flushed the recoil assembly with the slide. Not really an ideal setups as it isn't contained when I take it apart but it isn't a problem. I keep the stock one in my bag just in case. I also have a Brooks Tactical A Grip around the grip. The stock backstrap is way too aggressive, especially with the snappy. 40

Im just not a fan of glocks, they're nice for sure but just not for me. The PPS is also slimmer in thickness then the G27.

While it may be slightly slimmer, you're sacraficing a few rounds when using the flush magazine. PPS is 6+1 right? G27 is 9+1.

Not trying to say you made a bad choice at all, just throwing that out there. I feel there is a great deal of misguided dislike towards Glock, and I don't understand it. I've been to the range with guys that straight up refuse to shoot my Glock even though they have never shot/handled one.

Regardless, nice purchase.

Looks like a very busy version of my G27

I found a milled 80% AR lower near by that I am in the process of picking up. Now that my 1911 is finished I want to build something else.

Check out the forum on There is a lot of information. Also is a great site with loads of info and projects.

As for the AK, does anyone mill their own receivers?  Are there any drawings floating around so an individual could machine one? (I don't know shit about AKs)

There are files here for quite a few firearms, one being an AK. It is for a bent receiver though I believe. I haven't opened that one up yet. I haven't been able to find any files/prints for a milled receiver. As far as I am aware though, the style of AK plays a big part in this so there are at least a few different types of receiver.

You can always go the 80% flat route as well, unless you are set on milling.
Link has a few links within to 80% suppliers.

Gal I went to high school with hit me up out of nowhere last night. Haven't talked to her in years. During our conversation she mentioned she has a shotgun... took me by surprise. She then went on to tell me how her dad has over 200 guns at his house and they go out to their own land to shoot all the time. She tends to shoot the AR10 and AK47 the most, she says.

I need to work my way into this one...

Taurus has really stepped their game up in the past few years.

I've heard the same from a lot of people. I really like the Raging Bull Series they have. The finish, porting, overall look and feel of them I think is great.

Because of these pics I also ordered this clip, and I must say he is a good guy very fast response and service, I've got the JYD 2 without the carbon blade but will likely upgrade sometime.

Very fast responses from him. Nice work and great customer service. I couldn't be happier.

Couch, i've been a member at Bladeforums for probably 5+ years and always liked STR's clips and rebuilds. I never could justify a 40 dollar clip for a sub 50 dollar knife though.

All of his clips are $30 flat + $4 shipping. Considering its a titanium plate and the JYDII has such wide screw location it is a fairly large plate, all hand made in low quantity I can justify it. I appreciate what he does and what goes into each clip. Seems like a solid guy and I'm into supporting that. I see what you're saying though about it being nearly the same as the knife.
