Friday Gun Pr0n #325

Today's gun has been in the G. armory for a while, but is sporting a new look:

Yes, that's the Kel-Tec P3AT sporting a snazzy new coat on the slide. Shipped it out to Speer, he of the newly minted gunsmithery, he cleaned it up and coated it with what was originally going to be nickel-coating but was wisely changed to Duracoat later. I like the way it came out, a lot - and it's going to be a lot better for pocket carry in the hot summer months than the "finish" that came from the factory. The finish that was mostly worn off, mind you.

I'll have some more posts later about the slide (and if I can get in touch with Speer for some more particulars (f'rinstance, I don't know if it was actually Duracoat or a similar product used). It's first-rate work, and I have close-ups of the slide to show it off. I'm also going to pick up some orange paint for the front sight and some white for the rear for contrast - the standard "sights" are laughable dents.

Thanks for breathing new life into an old companion, Speer!

That is all.
