    Just got these pics from Chuck last night. He didn't do a whole lot to it, but I think it turned out pretty cool. :D Rounded the butt, flush crowned the barrel, flush cut and recessed the slide stop, swapped ambi for a fitted single side safety then bead blasted to a nice satin matte finish. The grips on it came with it, but will most likely be getting swapped out for something in all black.

    Yeah. The SIS had the Ledge sights that can be used to rack the slide on different things.
