hello runner; i would love to post photos, i have a nice canon S1 is, the pc, printer etc. however i am just learning how to use the equiptment. as soon as i am comfortable with the various systems i'll post photos. meanwhile, picture in your minds eye a brand new P08 with 100% straw,all piting erased, all numbers intact, grip panels like new, and a l9ovely rust blue job(rust blue is a very time cinsuming process, be prepared$$$). mitch can match the orig. finish pretty closely with hot blue, but it's not as durable as the rust blue finish. look him up in google yellow pages. --john--

John,

I am curious about the relining of the barrel. Did you have that done in .30 Luger or 9mm? How well does it shoot after the relining?
