prefer a service length but tactical is fine by me, caliber doesn't matter. this frame is the only one I don't have in my collection, and sadly it has been my favorite since I first saw this design. It doesn't matter if it's in bad shape or has a high round count, is damaged, or even if it is just the frame as that is the part I can't find and they don't make anymore. I am even willing to overpay at this point, especially for something with the stainless slide, f.d.e. combo. let me know what you have and what you want for it, I will cover shipping and all the other fees.
