The additional advantage is it keeps the screws from backing out while shooting too.
    I believe you are correct sir. I realized that I had put the stock screws to the side as Kahr used regular steel, which I can not polish, and had stuck some extra stainless 1911 screws in their place. So, I will get some longer, stainless, hex heads and shorten them up. I do have some of those little orings left from a different set of 1911 grips, so I may need to do as you say. Thanks for the advice!

    About that rear sight...On Dawson Precision's site they explain that there were 2 different slides available on the K9. Good to know if any of you ever go to replace yours! Apparently I have the old style, so you can see why the ill fitment. I have a dispute going for a refund on the existing sights. If that falls through, I've already ordered the correct sight, so I will donate that rear sight to any forum member who wants it and has the newer slide. We shall see. I will update here if thats what ends up happening.

    your work is awesome, but I prefer the finish on the Mk. I have a MK9 03 elite and was wondering how hard it would be to put that finish on my pistol ???

    I plan to do the same to my MK, once it cools down outside.
    As far as difficulty polishing your MK, that would be relevant to your experience, or your pocket ($). I have about a month of nights out in my workshop sanding, filing, stoning and buffing the K9 to get it as you see. If you have not done one prior, I would recommend starting on a cheaper gun, watching youtube how to videos, and doing research on it. Wouldn't want to see you mess up your beautiful MK!
    OR... you can pay to have yours done. I have no idea how much a gunsmith would charge to polish one to this level, but I bet it would be North of $300.

    Iím not usually a fan of polished stainless. But, that thing looks like a bowl of mercury.

    Thats exceptionally well done. I dont see a wave or chatter mark anywhere.
