100 Years of Evolution UPDATE!

Here is a better pic of the Smith and Wesson Double Action .38 Fourth Model along with its younger sibling (click to you know):

In the interim, the S&W VTAC 9mm bullet hose underwent some mods as well. Note the stippling on the front and back straps as well as the magazine release.

This was accomplished with a soldering iron! I did not do this. My friend did and all I can say is wow. It does make a difference in the way this pistol handles. Not too much to feel you are getting beat up, but allows a great grip! The workmanship is awesome and had to be time consuming as well. 

To further my appreciation, he made this Kydex holster for it as well: 

In and of itself it is awesome. The fact that he made the angles of the belt loops to match my El Paso Saddlery and Leather gun belt precisely is icing on the cake!

If you want one, drop me a line. I am sure he would be willing to make you one.

So the Blog shoot is coming. Well, these things will not make themselves! 


  1. Wow....that's a whole lotta patience with a small-tipped soldering iron to make that many stiples!
