Here is another exceptional CCO, the recipe of Mark D. He made many changes to this project as it progressed, and ended up with this super recipe. Mark went with the CCO configuration with Aluminum Alloy frame as a base and had everything Ion Bond DLC Coated, Including the polished barrel. Instead of the standard checkering, he went with a stippling texture on the frame, mainspring housing and controls. This gives a super nice and unique look to this pistol. The stippling is not as aggressive as the Checkering, but gives a nice grip and control. Some other options selected were the BnG fancy top serration, Rounded Mainspring housing and frame butt, and stocked with both white and Red cocobolo,( Many folks are getting 2 sets of grips, the hand select wood is so nice it is hard to only choose one).. Thanks again to Mark for this super pistol build!!
