    Optional removable shadowboxed scales are in the works! I'm beyond excited about these, they were the plan from the start and are finally happening. How do you guys like the black screws on this one? 109802384_1193095901029318_2427437348753120241_o.jpg

    Black screws against that micarta looks very clean. Came you do other colors?

    Hey thanks!

    Yes I can, I'm probably doing satin at first because that's what my supplier currently has made... USA made to the industries highest tolerances and heat treated.

    I'll finish them all sorts of ways most likely, I usually custom size and treat each screw. They usually have Beta Titanium screws so I'll get them once in stock. lol I spent about 5 hours yesterday on screw selection and went with the same guys I have been using for years.
