    Just did a little forum search and I think I found a local place, but please feel free to give me more options.

    I ended up going out to Canby to meet with Jake, the owner of Twisted Firearms LLC. He took the time to write some very detailed, long emails to answer my questions. He earned my business!

    He is going to apply a flat black Moly Resin finish on the frame, I didn't have him do the controls to save myself some money and because they didn't need to be refinished anyway, I will happily post a pic for you when I get her back.

    Hope I'm not stepping on any toes but here are the pics. I must admit that I'm a bit of a fan of the way it all came together.
