    This pistol could be a problem for my "no new guns in 2019" resolution. Very nice indeed

    I don’t quite get the pricing on this and the original VIP models. They are great looking guns but double the price of a classic in DLC and I don’t see how that minimalistic engraving, bone grips and special case plus jeweled mags equals another 4K.

    Agreed. You could spec out a similar gun from Nighthawk for cheaper. I do like it (sans magwell) though.
