    So my UTC finally arrived!!! I'm stoked. Everything so far looks and feels as perfect as it can be. I'll be dumping down at least 350 rnds within the next week so I'll post some dirty ones! ;) but here she is. Enjoy.

    Just ordered some vz grips for her. These thin ones are really nice, just too thin for me. Whenever they get here, I'll update the pics. Hopefully it'll turn out as good as I hope.

    That's a handsome pistol.

    If it shoots half as good as it looks you'll still be happy!

    Thanks guys!!!! I really like the fit on it. You can definitely tell someone put some time into her. I really really love my Colt 21st century commander, but this one is coming on strong as my favorite.

    Very nice looking pistol there. Is it your goal to make us all jealous?

    New vz grips on her. It was a terribly hard decision, but I settled on some operator II's in hyena brown. Now just waiting on five new tripp mags and it'll be go time. Enjoy!!!

    I then proceeded to field strip and clean for approximately 1 1/2 hrs. Man that sucker was dirty. And holy crap, that barrel bushing was un-holy.

    It's good to get them dirty that way. How did it shoot? Any problems? What do you like about it better than your Colt?

    I guess your FT handle is true after dumping all that dough into your new pistol huh? ;)

    What the hell were you shooting? I've put 400 rounds of Tula through mine and it didn't look half as filthy.
