I've been trying to get one of these made for about four months or so and things are starting to look up. I've received the gun back with the comp and it's beautiful. The forearm was alot harder than anyone imagined but hopefully that will be in my hands by Xmas. But I can't wait to show the progress so far. Please note that I am posting this at a variety of places so if you've seen this before then I apologize. For some history about these weapons, enter "Hyman Lebman San Antonio" into Google search.

The real Lebman modified 1907 (lower one) with a nonmodified regular 1907 captured with Dillinger gang in Tucson - the Lebman gun does not have its vertical grip attached:

Lebman replica with custom made comp - this photo came from the customizer, Tom Wilkinson, as my camera is dead:

Closeup - pretty darn good match I'd say.

What it's going to look like with luck:

It should be spot-on except for the lack of FA - mine will stay a semi-auto. I've got 6 of the 10-round mags.

That'd make the good basis for an article in one of the gun pubs.

Story,

Someone already had contacted me about him doing an article but using photos of my gun. I'm not sure what to make of such an "offer." Here is the gun with the old forearm installed and sight installed on the comp.
