    So I picked up this old Sig P225 last week for $350 which seemed like a pretty good deal. The gun came from a security agency and looked like it had been carried quite heavily but internally it looked nearly pristine.

    So it turns out someone I work with is just getting into cerakoting and I offered him this gun to practice on. He's a very meticulous person and I was completely confident that the end result would be a thing of beauty and I was right! He took the gun completely apart down to bare frame and bare slide and did all the small parts in black. The side and frame he did in desert tan and he replaced the old sights with night sights.

    The gun came out brilliantly I think and for his first cerakoting job I told him that he should be extremely proud of himself for doing such a professional looking job on it. He only wants $75 but I'll most like pay him $100 because it came out so well.

    Anyway lots of before and after pics below.....

    I gotta stop looking at pictures of 225's. I just might be picking one up at the next gunshow if I can find a decent deal. Anyway, your friend did a wonderful job and that's damn good deal.

    Very nice looking 225. What it deserves now is a set of Hogue Aluminum or G10 grips

    New grips are next.

    I'm leaning towards the Hogue chain link G10 G-Mascus green.
