I'm still here and alive.

Yea, I’ve been quiet for a while, but I’m still here, just been busy with school and writing. But really I’ve been working on the manufacturing side of my business. I have more than 50 hours on this build, but it’s super clean and shoots like a $2k 1911. Trigger is 3 pounds 6oz. I’m also just starting out the web site at Xring3.com

Thanks. I’ve got my manufacturing license all set, and I’m just getting the last of the machines and tools in place. I hope to start manufacturing within a month. Getting the license as well as setting up an LLC and trademarking the logo has been a pain and expensive. But I’m still having fun.

Very cool. The graphic designer in me would like to see the “-RIng 3” with some leading above the crosshairs. I “think” it would improve the design, but that’s just my .02 sir.

My first design had the -Ring 3 in front of the cross hairs, but it just didn’t look right. I felt looking through a scope at the words worked better than having the words in front of the scope reticle.

How’s your ankle doing, feeling.
10mm long slide :heart_eyes:

The ankle is being a pain, some days it’s really bad.

10mm is one I plan to make, likely right after a 9mm. Long slide might be an option.
