functionality wise i definitely needed some grip due to recoil wedging the gun out of my sweaty hands so i order a talon rubber textured grip online and it finally came and i just installed it. i cant wait to take it to the range and try it out. it already feels amazing during dry fire with snap caps.
i also wanted some customization so i painted the engravings red with nail polish. came out great although i think the next color i go for will be gold....or maybe green haha.
