    Concur that the faux stag grips and shortening the barrel were cool things to do!

    If the barrel has been shortened, then the various logos will not be centered on the barrel. So if you see something like ".38 S&W C'' by the time the wording reaches the muzzle, and not ".38 S&W CTG" neatly centered on the barrel, it's been shortened. Not a bad deal, lots of folks like the balance of a 4" or 5" barrel over 6" and 8" ones. It's a pretty common alteration all told. Refinishing is common, but alters the value of the piece badly.

    So what you have is a shooter, but one that should give you many thousands of rounds of good recoil therapy!!

    Nice! I like, have you had it to the range yet? Curious to hear how it shoots.
    Life is short, take time to enjoy it.
