Not sure if the pics are big enough to show detail very well. I am happy with the finish and cannot find flaws in color uniformity or metal finish. As good as I have seen compared to others I own to include RRA, Stag and DPMS. Worth a look if anyone's trying to find a lower in these "tough" times. If you look at the mag well stamping, the letters are a little rounded. Out of five that I bought, this was the only one like this. The rest are very sharp. Not that this one is terrible and sloppy, just not as sharp as the others.
