Here it is. I shot it Saturday. Runs like a sewing machine. Can't wait to get it in the woods.

I did. This heat and humidity is rough.

Very nice, I do like the two tone look. I bought a complete G40 but did the full MCARBO spring and polish - it is very nice. Got it late last year and missed a doe so I added a reflex for this year plus more trigger time should help me. Good luck

Good luck this year. Glock nailed it with the G40.

Related also to your other thread, my G40 is in the queue this year. I have taken a hog with it but missed the only doe I have shot at it with - thus I added the reflex and it helps my aging eyes. May even get first up status...I agree Glock nailed it with the big 10

Which sight did you go with? I built another .357 and plan on putting some type of optic sight on it.

I tried a vortex razor previously and did not really like it (not downing them just personal preference) so sold it. This time I did a little more research and tried the much cheaper Burris Fast Fire III. I do like it a lot on the Glock and the controls are very easy to manipulate.

I will look into it. I have so many in rotation that this one may set out 2021 season.
