    Looks good. Who did the work and do you mind telling us the cost?

    I work in a large machine shop, and one of the mold makers is also gunsmith. We bought the moly resin and he does all the guys guns in the shop for free. Heres a pic of my Kimber he did also.

    Well good work. I like the mat finish. I have an old P6 that could use a new finish and a simple finish like that would work well. Did he do the frame too?

    In the picture the slide looks a little different than the frame. Is that just an affect from the camera and lighting? It seems like the slide is more of a mat finish than the frame is. I'm being picky btw. I meant what I said, it looks good. If you notice even factory Sigs with alloy frames don't exactly match the slides.

    The Kimber was sandblasted before applying the coating, the 245 was not.

    Heres the 229, I decided not to go all green, but stay with the green/black
