    That is very cool! I need to get a .22lr pistol. almost bought the Chiappa barretta copy over the weekend. Also saw a Barretta 1952 mod 948 .22lr pistol that was very sweet. guy wanted 250.00. I should've bought it.

    needs to go on my buffing wheel to get the final scratches out. But the gun is dead nuts accurate. It is exactly the same gun as a Sig Sauer 1911 .22. GSG makes it for them. Paid $225 for the gun , slightly used, + $12 for the grips. I kinda like the lettering on the slide. But everyone has different tastes. Just shows that you can make a decent looking pistol for not a lot of money

    It was a decent looking gun before you messed with it.;)
    Now it's either cool, or flashy, depending on your tastes.

    Keep in mind it's basically a soft metal. Highly polished might look nice but will scratch very easy. I would either use a mild abrasive ScotchBrite pad and give it a brushed aluminum look or jewel it.
