Dwight, the holdopen may have been added by a commercial gunsmith. Since the hole appears from the photograph to be in the area intruding on the raised frame rail and the ogive leading to it, it would be extremely difficult to drill through that area without the drill "walking off" or breaking on the uneven surface. Normal machine shop practice is to machine a "base" to drill into for these sorts of areas. I have not paid any attention to arsenal holdopen add-on proceedures and do not know if they just machined a smaller base, had somme walk off errors, or were very very good drill operators.

Nice pistol

regards, heinz
