A wise man never gets ahead of himself.

Good call.

By the way, I noticed warranty for second owners is one year.

What is warranty for first owners?

Thanks very kindly.

I like the subtle finish. Also I prefer to mix gloss with a more subtle finish, if there is any gloss involved.

I know this is just my opinion but if you want a subtle finish, slightly off gloss is going to come across as unfinished...possibly even giving the impression of having a low quality anno job. If you want gloss then go with a fully polished piece, because half *** isn't going to cut the mustard. If you want a subtle finish, I would go with a dust finish personally. I think the dust finish would look really nice but the correct mix of two colors in a dust finish could really make the body lines "pop".

You know, we were kinda thinking the same thing. Very well put.

Polished at first makes the most sense, especially since, in all honestly, we are using some of the same people and a machine or 2 from the Vanguard products and they had a reputation of not always being spot on. We have completely different process we did in setting this up, but internet rumors and the like are what they are.

Since we don't have a hand polish and it is purely mechanical, it might be important to make sure we show how much further we went on this. We can play around more when we are rolling.

I was going to say that the subtle finish reminds me a bit of the Psychoballistics anno... that's not really a good thing if you've ever owned one .

put up a poll, and see where the results lead you. if more people are wanting gloss over subtle, then so be it or vice versa. since you are being somewhat open on the making of and the development of the gun, why try and guess what people would want? i prefer a high polish, but other people might prefer to more subdued finish. a gloss finish looks like you put 2 more cents into the finish, the esthetics of the gun, i.e. trying to give the people the BEST quality product over quick and dirty, get it out the door to get people's money quicker.
