Folks, just in case anyone is interested, I posted my first impressions of the Ed Masaki Dragon here: https://bullseyepistolblog.net/the-dragon-has-landed/

To sum it up, I am amazed! It's definitely a keeper and I have no buyer's remorse whatsoever!

Congrats....you have a piece of historic art.
My first time to Perry I met Mr. Masaki & he put one in my hand. Even I put them all where they belonged.

Can you take it apart and post images of the internals?  I really would love to see how the thing actually functions as it doesn't really seem like a "1911" anymore.

This is definitely one of the neater BE guns I've ever seen.

I'd rather not take it apart unless absolutely necessary, because it is a bit trickier than a 1911. The frame parts are standard, but the barrel is ramped and there are two screws going across the frame and the barrel ramp, and they hold the whole thing in place. There is a video on YouTube where Ed himself shows how to disassemble the gun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UzH1mFdQis

Are there holes drilled in the barrel from the two tubes running along the sides?  Assuming so, how far back do the series of holes go?  Are they just forward of the chamber?

From what I can tell, they are just forward of the chamber, one hole per tube (i.e. 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, 2 o'clock and 3 o'clock).
