Man those ads for RMI as well as this Thread, bring back so many great memories, thanks for posting them!

As fate would have it, I met and got to know the daughter of the owner of CA and RMI many years later as she hung out at a bar I used to frequent.

I will vouch for the amazing research and quality of Ed-209's work. I thought I knew
a lot about the Gun from U.N.C.L.E.. After buying the CDs a while back I was duly
educated.

Thanks! I originally was only gathering information for myself but, somehow, it turned into a book!!! If I remember correctly, It took about 2 years to gather and format everything. --Ed

Little more work on the grips.
I had to build up the rear inside part to build up the section to hold the brass screw grip escutcheon.
A quick spray shows up areas that need a bit more sanding so...more filling and sanding until they start looking better.

Many years ago, I lucked out and connected with a prop man named Heilman (john I think).
He sold me two pairs of resin grips for the U.N.C.L.E. original screen used pistols. I had to
modify my real P38s to use them. The grips were also painted flat black and looked great.

That would be Dave Heilman. t the time, only resin grips were available. I connected with a friend (not Brad Ferguson) who offered metal CNC'd aluminum grips and accessories. If you ever consider an upgrade, let me know.

I agree... the older I get, the more I realize that you get out of it, exactly what you put into it. Right? Keep up the great work!
