Around a year ago I told of my woes with a beltsanding accident and my 642's finish. I had buffed it down to no finish on the frame at the time after giving up on fixing the scuffs. At the time I promised to post a Pic--Well stuff happens and I never did. So here ya go--http://www.2rco.com/sitebuilder/images/Aiweight_1-600x450.jpg

Not bad. Although you may want to put some finish on it to prevent the steel parts from rusting. There's damn little actual steel in an Airweight, I know, but it's good to take proper precautions.

The 642 Airweight guns have a stainless steel cylinder/crane assembly, barrel, thumb latch, and ejector rod. The trigger is steel. The frame itself is the only aluminum alloy part.
