    Here’s my latest.
    Lightweight Xtac frame with Ryan Wilson grip modification. Standard CQB stainless slide with serrated rear and top, heavy bevel on bottom. Concealment BTGS and hammer. Ameriglo front sight. I’ve been debating on grips and can’t decide. I’m also having buyers remorse on the two tone, I think it looks great in pictures just not so sure about in my holster. It. Isn’t be going back to Arkansas to be painted soon.

    That is a sharp looking pistol! I dig the two tone look you chose!

    I love a good two-tone and that one qualifies. I also like grips #2 better than the WC grip ;)

    Gorgeous pistol. The two tone sure works on that one.

    I think I’m going to replace the stainless grip screws and carry it for awhile before I make any decisions. It’s been totally reliable through about 600 rounds, 500 AE 124 grain and 100 Hornady Critical Duty 135 grain (duty ammo).

    Here’s a third grip option, I kind of like this look also but think it would look better if the trigger wasn’t coated.

    I'm haven't been a fan of two tones but I like this one, Eric. I prefer grip option #2 with blue grip screws. Enjoy.

    Unless you open carry the good news is nobody will see it in the holster under your shirt and say ‘ewwww!’ :)
    Any Wilson is nice looking and that one is too!

    While I agree with everyone’s opinion that it looks nice it is going back to Wilson today to be made all black. I’m also having a Ambi-safety added to it. Hopefully my wait won’t be real long.

    While I agree the two tone looks nice it’s just not for me. Wilson has had it for 2 days now, hopefully sometime next month it will come back. In addition to the refinish I’m having a couple other things done also.

    Comparatively speaking it wasn’t that bad IMHO. Spoke with Wilson yesterday and I think we came up with a game plan will now have to wait and see. I will say the chamber is being fluted and a Ambi Safety will be installed. I’ll leave the rest for when it returns home.
