    I'm not so big a fan of the stainless/chrome look. I prefer a black, matte finish on guns, just for the reflectivity of it. Especially if it is a SD piece. I'd rather not have a flash off the shiny surface give me away. But that's just my personal preference. Now that being said, DB that IS a very nice looking piece you have there. I really like the texture going on with the grips as well. They must give a really good purchase on the hands, wet or dry or with thin gloves, yes? Enjoy your new baby, feed it well and lots, and make sure you keep it nice and clean.
