    Ok, here we go.

    Details, Old-Yeller did the stipling. He has done stipling for all my m&p's, and gave this a whirl. The pics do not do it justice.

    The plating, from our good friend Sprinter1. It is hard to photograph, but comes across as a stainless steel look, VERY NICE.

    I've been having fun with my CBN plated P3-AT, everyone that has seen it at my local gun shop and range think it is stainless steel. I finally had to tell my local gun shop owner that it is plated after he called his distributor and Kel-Tec trying to order the "Stainless Steel" model ;D

    RJ - That definately looks sweet. BTW, what's up with that grip color.  Is that a 1st gen grip or a custom color job?  :-/

    grey grip acquired from adamsesq.

    i would presume it is stock, but the flash makes it hard to tell.

    i think it looks sweet though.

    OK, it's grey. The pic (flash) makes it look baby blue. Either that, or planting vegetables in my garden today, I stayed out in the sun too long. ;D

    Maybe the camera's white balance is a bit off, or maybe it is a lot more bluish-green than my grey P3-AT.

    i like the look of the steel hammer block pin. compressed on both sides so it can not be removed.

    now to get silver frame pins

    and a trigger like wilson.

    Drool. I can't wait for my P3 to get back from Sprinter1. That slide looks sweet.

    That is an old purchse from many moons ago, from a friend in the forum who goes by the name of Beach. He does not do them any more, and right now, there are no CURRENT sources of them around.

    That may change in the future. But not right now.

    I sure hope someone takes up the task of making the steel mag catches as I would love to get my hands on a couple of them.
