    Ok, not really new, this is a 3CH MK1* contract Inglis with shoulder stock that I bought in a baggy. It was in really sad shap with lots of pitting on the frame and slide but all the parts were there and the original matching numbers barrel was in excellent condition. I think the gunsmith did a really good job so far, I wanted all the original markings left on so there was only so much polishing he could do, and I had is sprayed in Duracoat Titanium color.

    Now I need to decide whether to go with blued furniture or hard chrome, I've put a set of Esmerelda 1/2 checkered grips I already had on it. For comparison I have the chrome slide release and the blued safety on it. I'm thinking with the C&S extended safety in hard chrome it might look pretty good. I'll refinish the metal on the shoulder stock to match whichever way I go.

    I think a hard chrome finish would look great with that titanium Duracoat. Just enough of a contrast to really set it off.

    Two tone autos look. Cool. I have a couple. Also have one of these HP with the stock. The most fun is shooting it with a .22 conversion kit. At the range you will get a lot of attention. Enjoy

    Cheers,
