I don't have so many to have given as much thought . Thanks for distracting me again . Out there on youtube ,there are some amazing videos on forging both with and without molds . I do see the advantage of forging in a mold . Simply amazing how much hot steel they can stuff in a mold by beating . lets you see the process , kind of like packing a snow ball . I'm not going any were with this other than those looked poured to me . Thanks , it has been educational .
I can see that . Maybe on older ones they used a two part forge mold and then switched to cast later to catch up with the times and be a touch faster ? It would neat to see a busted one for the end grain , over the years .
I agree . I used to buy for a different brand , some trigger guard back strap combo , Qualight , I think . They were cast brass and filed out and buffed up to were nobody would know one way or the other .
