Are these 100% plates or 80%?
If these are 80% what's the diferance between your plates & Coldsteel's 80%plates for $75.00?
There is a world of difference. Halo plates are made from the proper steel machined to precise tolrerances to origonal spec's. the fit, finish and engraving are the best there is. you can get a registered plate also from halo for about $50.00 extra.

I have mixed emotions on this recommendation.

Now for the down side. He lost one of my parts. I am willing to accept partial blame, I should have completely stripped the lock frame before I sent it to him. That was a newbie mistake on my part. I was not sure exactly which parts needed to be machined. The part he lost was the plunger. It can be seen in the pics below.
What really frosted my onions was his attitude about the whole thing. He got a little nasty when i suggested that he take another look around for the missing part.
I KNOW for a fact that the plunger and plunger spring were still installed in the lock frame. He even admits that the spring was there, but says the plunger was not.
The plunger was only a $3 part, but of course I got hosed on the shipping/handling ($8 IIRC)
He has since edited his ad to state exactly which parts should be shipped, so this shouldn't happen to anyone else.
I was just extremely put off by his attitude as soon as we had a problem.
As a machinist, He's good, as a businessman, he could stand some improvement.
In that case contact Sherman he is a friend of mine and did my last set and 2 for friends of mine. his contact information is in the vickers section on my site. tell him I sent you as he doesn't normally do this all the time
I bought one but havent recieved it yet. I'm noy sure If I'll use it or not. I might end up selling it.
I just got my RSP in from Halo. FIRST RATE STUFF! Can not recomend these plates enough. I also had 30CAL do my internals. I am really happy with him too.
Halo is the best for plates, got a 1919, fn30 from him and have a vickers and M2 coming. they fit perfectly, look great and he does excellent engraving.
Here is another very good person to do internals machining:
I had done to my internals by Jack at Tusculum Repair in TN. His work was top notch and the turn-around was super; 7 days from me to back at my mailbox again. (Priority mail) He can reached at: email@example.com
Pics of the work he did on mine are at this site:
