After 14 long weeks, the Fedex man finally left me with a present this afternoon. For those that don't remember the story, I bought this pistol new from Buds a little less than a year ago. It was originally done in hard chrome, which was cool, I like hard chrome. I carried the gun for a summer, and it began to develop corrosion on the butt. After many rounds back and forth with Nighthawk, I finally sent it back after Christmas to have the entire pistol done in Diamond Black IonBond - slide, frame, barrel, small parts, everything. I am pretty pleased with the outcome. This was by far my favorite pistol in my collection, so I feel great having it back. I also put some non-logo checkered Alumagrips on it to complete the look, which I am a big fan of. Enough talk, on to the pictures!
