Keep the outside good and oiled. The black finish is known to be fairly thin and will develop a thin layer of rust if not kept good and oiled. I had one in black and I ended up trading it for the stainless version. You got a good price on it though. Shoot the heck out of it.

Congratulations, enjoy and don't forget the range report.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
