    WOW, very impressive. That's too funny about the sales tard, though. Only thing: I would order checkering on the front strap as opposed to that "stippling" or whatever you call it. Much cleaner.

    I too would prefer checkering on a gun DT was going to blue. It's nice to know Wilson offers stippling though, that's the first one i've seen with it.

    Well, it must be a misprint, because we all know that Wilson doesn't sub out any of their finishes, i.e., hardchrome...:whistling:

    I fell in love with the Turnball finsih many months back after reading up on it on the Wilson 1911 forums. Looks awesome. Makes me think of adding it on a future build.
