    Welcome Loaded! I hope yo love your V-10 as much as I love my V-16. What a joy to shoot ! Think about getting a Pachmyer wrap around finger groove grip. I think you will love it. It is better than the Hogue.

    Thanks a lot for all the info. This gun shoots great. Misprint its the V-12 sorry. I already picked up the Hugue grips.
    I'll check out the ones you mentioned. This week or next its going in for a trigger change. I want to get rid of the verticle "wobble" it in now.

    anyone recomend someone that does chrome?

    thanks

    Several places do chrome. Here are a couple.

    Try : www.checkmatecustom.com

    www.techplate.com

    And my favorite; Accurate Plating and Weaponry [727] 796-5583.

    All do excellent work.

    Hope this helps.
