    frankly not sure how it happened, one day I'm saying that I don't care that much for the "scales" on the Kobra, few days later I own one of the buggers.....

    Someone posted a " look what George has" link to some guns on Gunslingers a short while ago, so i casually browse, next thing I know, I have a bloody EE !
    So thanks for that. Luckily it's not snowy here so my kids don't need warm clothes right now.....

    pics, because it happened.....

    I've not yet shot them, I'll get out this weekend and bang a few through, but they are very, very nice. I understand what people say when they use adjectives like refined and smooth....

    Congrats! Both of those look great. Very clean and business like. Love the grips. What are they? Especially the ones on the stainless. Goes great with that gun. Very nice. :thumbsup:

    i am, right now, twitchily scratching myself wondering how to score an SF Carry..... my wife's kinda cute still and she can dance.....



    The grips on the SS Kobra are Black gunners, the same as on the Black EE. They come like that in the bag, I guess the greyish color is some type of manufacturing residue. After sanding them to fit, i let them sit and soak up a light coat of oil which turns them black. I'm going to leave these as is and see what happens over time.
