well this beast wont be for everyone i guess. But the standard pp-19 is metal and plastic anyhow so i figure what the heck ill jazz it up. Also it was my ATS that was bugging me with its character flaws so i had to do something that would work with the ATS's plastic modern body. i dont think wood would (ha double wood) look good with it really. also its weight is its best feature in my opinion, for a full sized death machine to weigh under 3 pounds is pretty great and i wanna keep that intact.
