Started this one earlier in the Winter. X-Caliber .358 blank:
Sent it to a gent in WA state for Cerakote. Did great work and 1 week turn around:
Couldn't resist, had to take it to the range while still wearing primer:
3) 3 shot groups at 100 with factory 250's. Promising. Also have an '06 barrel chambered up for it. Working up the courage to pin the lug.
Finished up paint job today:
This is my first attempt. Watched lots of YouTube's and learned about all I don't know from folks here and there on the Internet. Also read a few books. Sure would like to have a mentor but not an option here in the weeds.
Not a bad way to stay out of the rain!
