The back story. ..
This was made as a thank you present for the field owner of a tournament that Earon hosted.
Don't know where and didn't ask.
The owner, upon receiving said gun then asked if it could be annodized to match his other guns. Apparently all his guns had the same color scheme.
Earon was a little miffed, to put it lightly.
Don't know if said owner ever got a gun, but if you remember his shirts from way back...
"You want it when?"
Yep, Earon, you're cool.
