    $340 price tag, very nice. A little duracoat or parkerizing and I think I'd call it done. oh.. and some CW grips ;)

    How long did it take you to fit everything?

    it took a while but I didnt really pay attention to the time I was up til 2 a couple nights and yeah some cerakote is what I want on it but the cold blue will do for now I also want to "bobtail it" but that and a match grade barrel and a new extractor and ejector will have to wait until I get to a more moneyfied position
