My son and I went to the gun show this morning in Macon. I knew what I was going for and was not disappointed to find that the fella that had been at the last show was back again with the Mark VI he said he "might" bring to the next show. As soon as a saw it, I bought it and here it is. Shaved to accept .45 ACP or .45 Auto Rim (purchased 100 rds of that as well).. It truely IS as nice as it looks in the photos. All the finish is there with little wear on the grips.
