Argentinian Ballester-Molina .45 ACP
(Before and After)
To test my metal working abilities, my mentor, Larry Lindstrom, had me do two conversions; the Ballester-Molina and the “Warthog,” a S&W Model 29 in 44 Magnum.
All of the metal work except the rear sight scallops was done with files by hand. Re-worked the firing system. Custom stipple work. Flat cut the front of the trigger guard. Millet adjustable sights. Shop built fiber optic front sights. Shop built grips of South Texas mesquite. Filed down the arch in the rear frame and stippled the grip area.
