    I was lucky enough to pick this up from a customer a couple weeks ago for a very nice price. It is an early serial number Predator II/Bobtail that was a two-tone (black over HC) when I got it. The original NHC black Perma-Kote was showing some wear, as well as the sights. The frame was hardchromed and looked to be in nice shape. I sent the slide and thumb safety to Chris at Metaloy. He replaced the sights and HC'd the slide.....it now looks like a new pistol. I particularly like the naked slide and the high grip cut on the frame. I have not fired it yet, but I was told by the owner it was a very reliable pistol. It is the only NHC is my collection, but it will fit in well with my other semi-custom naked slide pistols.....Real clean looking.
