I want to thank all who commented and supplied leads on my WTB post last week.
A big thanks to @WVsig for supplying me with this lead. And another big thanks to @gtnc for parting with this beauty and making a seamless transaction. If I had opted for overnight delivery and my FFL was quicker in responding I swear this all would have happened in 24 hours. And of course thanks to all the enablers here!
Here's some pics I promised on that thread @Dwe.

Hard to capture how nice the blueing looks with my amateur photo skills. I will have to try some outdoor shots if we ever get some sunshine here. I'm talking a guy at the club out of his American holly grips I hope. Love that look of ivory white on a blued pistol.

Now that's how I want my pics to look, deep shiny blue, and sharp. Beautiful gat there brother.
Try taking pics outside on an overcast day in the late afternoon.
This gives you good overall indirect filtered light.

Well we have mostly overcast skies here in the 'burgh shouldn't be a problem.

Give it a shot...
Angle of the gun to the light source is also important.

I know this sounds stupid but
your eyes are a great test.
Try and duplicate the view that looks good to your eyes with the camera.

post it up!
