This is another great shooting pistol. I used it for shooting falling plate when I first got into it. I make holsters and need to move a couple guns out for new ones so I can mold them. I have never had any problems with breakage or functionality. It was cerakoted black with platinum controls a few years ago because I didn't like the two tone. The frame is aluminum. and the slide is stainless steel. I think $600 is a steel for this gun. Feel free to shoot me some offers but don't be ridiculous.
