    looks like a airsoft with the wack glossy colors. Hopefully it'll look proper when it's all put together.

    I would of just done the slide in black. I really like the two tone look of a black slide with a silver frame. Would of had the front and back straps checkered, new sights, new trigger and been done with it.

    I probably wouldn't'a gone that route, but it is your gun, and if you like it as it is, cool.

    I would have gone for the same frame color all around, with black controls, but that doesn't look that bad.

    depends how much you shoot and how you shoot but duracoat does not do that well in the slide rails. All things said duracoat is pretty durable. When done right iit rather attractive there. I think the flat colors look much more proper on guns than gloss.

    It should look alot more flat after it's cured.That pic was taken not even an hour out of the oven.
    I'm not going to even piss with it for atleast 2 weeks after I get it back.And won't be fired off till after the new year
