    Is anything else on the build sheet incorrect besides "Master grade blue with nitre blued accents"? Just looking at this beauty and this has raised further questions about the build.

    Are you a buyer? Didn’t think so.

    hmmm... I'm going to ignore the insinuation. But to answer your question, Yes, Ted also left the "p" off of "top" in "Flattened and serrated slide top in curved arrow pattern"

    I do think for $7,000+ the build sheet should be as perfect as the gun, just saying.....

    I ain’t a potential buyer but hell I don’t give a crap about the build sheet. I haven’t even looked at any of my build sheets from Lou. They get stuck in a case closet and the guns go on my hip or in the safe.

    Can’t argue with that...

    Very pretty gun though, I’d want a medium trigger not a short & I have never seen the benefit of a presentation box personally but someone is going to be happy with that gun, I hope the buyer shoots the hell out of it and doesn’t leave it in the safe as a trophy to show off to his or her friends.

    This gun is over-priced. I’ll take it.

    You're absolutely right, and I'm sure Ted won't mind re-doing the build sheet to correct the boo boos. But I disagree with the notion that a mistake in the build sheet is a reflection on the build itself. Maybe it wasn't meant the way I took it.
