Jut got it today, man what a beautiful piece of artwork. Last LB I bought, and first 1911 I owned I put the idiot mark on it within 5 minutes of owning it. I am scared to touch this thing!!! :what: Pics do not do it justice. It almost looks like a real dark blue or even black finish. I did notice one small area under the ejection port that does have about 1/4 line where the bluing did not take too well. Everything I wanted, rolo night sights, magwell, omg, I am so happy right now! 19 weeks is a long time, but it does seem like yesterday now that I have it in my hands that I ordered it from John.
