    My P3AT with OD frame and blued slide is on the way.

    My new plan is to send it off to CCR for a cera-hide finish.

    Curious what you think of these possibilities? (P9 shown, photoshop colors are approximate...)

    Olive drab frame, Olive drab slide.

    Olive drab frame, Earth Brown slide.

    Those blue accents are a clever idea. And easy to incorporate!

    I think either would be an improvement over blued, just for durability's sake. But you really don't need to justify it to anyone if you wanna change the color of your gun. Just do it! I like the two-tone myself.

    Just from reading the descriptions I voted green on green figuring the brown would be WAUgly. Then I saw the pictures. WOW - I really like that brown on green. That is cool!

    I agree....I saw an AK done in brown and green and liked it! If my new green frame wasn't parked, I would be all over the earth brown :cool:

    These look cool too though

    I like that brown so much I think I may know what I'm asking for for Christmas!!
    I've got the OD, and don't care much for the blued slide against it. Hadn't occurred to me to change it!
  9. Can I order one of each?

    As you can see below.... I like a bit of color!

    Probably would have to start with a completely stripped set of plastic, as the grips themselves are not removable...

    Yes, you'd have to send them stripped grip, probably the hammer block could remain in place. I just thought the color combos were kinda kool.

    I have thought about armor coting(or something similar) the slide on my P3at. The blueing is nice but on both P3ats i have owned theres always a little bit of uneveness to the shine on it. Its not a big deal becouse its a sub $400 pistol but just kinda bugs me. I think i would go with all OD Green myself...

    Do you carry it on a chain around your neck, showing off both the KT and your cleavage? ::)
