I fired it when I had it mounted in my Springer, won't get to shoot this one until next week. Suffice to say I was impressed enough with the .460 Rowland setup that I bought a platform for its permanent host...

Cleaned it up and buffer out the scuffs in the slide. Put on a set of Pachmayr wrap-arounds and an arched MSH. This one will go to the range on Saturday. Thanks to Bear for some advice on making sure this kit was fit & setup properly...

I think it needs a set of cooler grips. Perhaps something in G10.

Just out of curiosity, what was the process you used to buff out the scratches? My P238 came with a couple of light scratches, and as looking for a good way to try to get them out.

Actually, I wanted more of a brushed finish so I used some 600 grit wet & dry paper and just slowly "smoothed" the finish. Polishes tend to make it to shiny for me so I went this way.

For JD, I had the G10s on it and it looked real nice but I prefer shooting with Pach's...

Very nice, NGIB.
I'll also agree, I think the Black on stainless looks sweet
