    Not a big fan of the rear sight, but very nicely done overall.

    The gray look's much better on Chucks guns, it maybe his photos, but i'm betting it's more in his methods. No offense, just think it would look better all black.

    No its the photo. I spray Cerakote on a daily basis.Poor Cell phone pic.I do black guns constantly. It's nice to change it up a bit.
    Little better color on this one.

    Very nicely done. I would go brown grip safety and not serrated the back of the slide if it was a build for myself, but that means its almost perfect in my opinion. I like the colors and the classy - utility look of the pistol. What finish is that ? What pull weight is the trigger ?

    wonder what an all snipper gray gun would look like? Nice finish and build too.
