At least it now looks like it should be.

Looks like the restoration did about the best that could be done under the circumstances; I would for sure keep "before" photos together with the pistol, for future reference/documentation.


Any chance you can post a photo of the inside of the mag well, showing what the gripstrap damage looks like from the inside? The damage appears to be a schrapnel strike that penetrated into the magazine. Is the piece of schrapnel still imbedded in the gripstrap?

Thanks. It was expensive but the pistol was worthy of a restoration.
