Hey, looks good. I'm curious if the parts are going to fit with 2 different finishes?
I looked online to compare the DAK to the DA/SA and it looks like I have the DA/SA model. I'll order another one just to ensure I'm correct. I appreciate everyone help with this. I initially decided to build this for fun and the satisfaction of it. I also wanted to commemorate my time in Iraq working for DOS as a contractor. My serial number reflects it 0517 (2005-2017). Diplomatic security uses the P229 and I wanted to build the same model but to my liking.My question currently, is the trigger bar you have a DA/SA model, or a DAK model which doesn't have a sear release capability.
I am not him, but I can tell you the answer: It's both. You have to cut the rails and drill two pins (Trigger and takedown lever) and the vertical hole through back of the frame for the mainspring strut.Johnnny13, I know it's late in the game, and off the subject, but your 80% frame... what exactly did you have to do, to complete it? Drill the pin holes, or mill the slide rails?
That was the same conclusion I reached. I also had doubts about the quality and durability of the anodizing a DIY setup can produce.Given the cheap price of used P229's, there's no real advantage to doing one of these unless you live in California. With that said, I'm thinking about doing one
