    Very nice. I have a Colt I’d like to see “in graffitied”.

    Pretty nice blue job. Unless your want to live with the speedloader modified grips you can pick up a nice pair of replacements on Ebay. They are a bit pricey but they round out an already nice rescue job.

    Here's a trick to try on the original grips.

    Wrap then up in a silicone impregnated cloth and forget about them for nine months to a year. I promise, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Wow. Not questioning how you came on the gun; I assume not new so this is not directed at you, but: why would they do that to an otherwise beautiful gun and who would buy it from them? I suppose uninformed, novice, gun owners. Nice clean up job and beautiful results.

    The importer's mark placed on all imported firearms is required by law. Some importers use a billboard. Some are very unobtrusive. CAI falls somewhere in the middle.

    Interesting. How is it that CIA imported an S&W revolver? Did S&W make some offshore?

    edit: I think I figured it out. They may be importing used police or military (or other) guns used offshore and then imported...Makes sense.
