This thing had a real rough finish when I got it a year ago and it still does, but I worked it over with some Flitz and believe I've made some improvement. It still has considerable holster wear as it was a C.A.I. import and it was obviously carried a lot. I can live with the wear as I intend to carry and shoot it. I do apologize for the stocks, it came with some real beaters and I don't want to put the only nice diamonds I have for a Square-Butt J-frame on it, so I opted for these CDNN specials I had and actually the gun feels good. I'll be keeping my eye out for a quality set of fingered stocks at the next show.
