    This HP has all of the usual full house custom features except the finish. It is a custom brushed blue by Glenrock Bluing. Phil is an outstanding individual that still does it the old school way. The finish on this gun is done by polishing the metal after the media blast to get the surface prepped. Then it is "polished" again with a very fine 3000 grit wheel. This gives the metal a very "warm" and gently rounded appearance. It looks like a very well polished black oxide like Parkerizing but very very smooth and it is blued. It turns colors in the light just like a regular blue. And it is very different from a satin blue as the color is very deep and the metal very smooth. Anyway, please enjoy my crappy pics of this pistol. It was going to be a family HP, but my son decided to not keep it and go with another. This will be getting a new home as soon as someone speaks up for it, so I thought I had better get some pics of it while I still have it.

    Very nice!

    I've never been a fan of the HP, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good looking pistol. Nice work.
