Default I love shiny pistols! Here's mine, lets see yours.

I love guns period, but as a collector as well as a shooter I've definitely settled into a pattern here: Stainless does it for me. Here's a group shot of all my current shiny guns, lets see yours:

Oh my protohyp, I love shiny and I love sig.. I have a 229 extreme elite on layaway. I think she will be headed for a nickel bath as soon as she gets home. Are those factory or aftermarket finishes?

My 1994 Beretta 92FS Italian INOX brand new never been fired and my only safe queen. Have the USA version so decided to keep this one new since you cant get them anymore. Added the ghost grips.





Satin finish on these old italian frames is amazing



And here she is with my Kimber Pro Carry II

Man that's beautiful. The frame looks like its a darker color than factory inox. Did you have it refinished, or perhaps it's just the lighting?

No refinishing Chris. The lighting makes it seem darker then it is. If you look at the pic I posted of the back of the grip thats what the frame looks like. Has that satin finish to it. This pic is in a little better light but still hard to tell.
BTW thats one beautiful collection you have yourself Chris.

i take mine out about every 2-3 months and apply another round of polishing to it - just now started to really break it down and do a better job on the trigger and the cylinder

im starting to get results - not done, but im getting there
