Is this a sorta 'practice' effort, tho' it's not like it's your first rodeo.

Moon, thats a pity those are gone, i know i've saved them in the past so Ive got copies somewhere. but I'm sure if you google chinese PPK, you will find several. Often they are on British pages as demil guns for sale.

and yes, this is the real deal, there ain't no practice to it.

Pilk', it's a gorgeous morning sitting in the gazebo, and I don't want to spoil it looking at demils....
Anxious to see your finished product; is this a commission, or just for grits and shins?
Best,
Moon

Moon. It is a “spec” piece as in speculation that I will offer for sale on completion. I expect to sell it for very serious money. That said. In regards to your previous quality question I now have some personal experience. This hole was not present originally. It slowly appeared as I sanded down. It is cavernous looking inside under the microscope. There are other indicators that this problem could spear else where due to poor metallurgy....... not a good thing for an engraver.

Looks like it's time to revise the intended engraving pattern, in order to blend this flaw into the design.

I have found many of those inclusions when working on stainless Colts. You find a tiny flyspeck and you try and polish it out, and it just grows and grows the more you polish. Can't recall ever seeing it in regular steel though.

I have never tried microwelding, but I have had several guns TIG welded. The problem is that this often leaves "ghost marks" in the bluing, so it might be better to work it into the engraving. Maybe you just found the best place for some gold inlay? Improvise, adapt and overcome...

Well, hell Pilk'. That's trouble you don't need. Nada on the link, BTW, but I'll cheerfully wait to see the one you're working on.
BTW, it's amazing that the Chinese could make a (presumably) functioning PP-series, and S&W struggled with it.
And mechanical things aren't the only items the Chinese steal...it's one of the issues in our trade talks.

Maybe I should make something like this for it, but with a Communist star?
