Hey thanks for the compliments! I got it in early 2006. I had Earon mill just about everything on it, stock/valve/pump sides/rail and who knows what else. It originally came with the 1.5 finger hinge frame, but when he started making slides again I picked one up. That was at the end of 2009.
So it has the new slide frame, but the old style collar assembly. Cosmetically I think it's one of the best I've seen, I like the fit between the styles. I don't think I've seen another with that mix, but perhaps I've not been paying attention.
