    Well I finally got tired of the shiny finish on my Springer so I dehorned and blasted it today. (It also wears VZ Aliens now)

    I didn't bother with the mag well because I have a new one on the way.

    You did a great job. It looks awesome! Which mag well are you installing? I just received a Smith and Alexander magwell that I'm excited about.

    Wilson, I'd like to have a SA slimline but $90 is a little steep right now.

    The Wilson part is nice and will make your SA even sweeter.

    I did that to a kimber custom shop Eclipse and it looked soooo much better I hand blended everything and did a very light carry melt, not that bar of old soap thing kimber does.

    I added a stainless MSH and blended to the frame rounding the butt a bit. when I was done a guy saw it in my holster at a local shop and made me an offer I could not refuse, I think stainless guns look right with a Matte nead blast finish.

    Very nice looking blaster.
