This one's supposed to be a workhorse, and it already points so well and feels so right in the hand that I can forgive it for being a bit on the ugly side.
I think this is gonna look really good. The mock up you did had just the right amount of milsim type edges and wood to look cool for a pistol. Good luck with building it.
