That is going to look real sweet when you get it all back together.

What kind/color grips are you going to use?
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Very nice indeed! BTW, I got the round trigger guard transitional today. No one even bidded on it.
I wish I would have had the money.  I would have loved to have that.  Congrats.

I am very optimistic.  She shot very well in her test fire before Cerakote.  She should pass through my hands later today going from Cerakote to the gunsmith.

I got my hands on the Ghost as it passes from the Cerakote job to the gunsmith.  I'm very happy with the gunmetal gray.  It is close to the factory satin nickel but just enough on the gray side to be unique.  I had the controls done in the gray as well so the only black on the gun will be grips, sights and hammer.  I'm very much looking forward to seeing the final product.  It will probably be a week or so.  The Truglo TFX sights still haven't arrived yet.  Fast shipping my patootie.

I'd like to introduce everyone to the Ghost.  An '02 model CZ 85B recently rescued from Israeli surplus oblivion.  She is cerakoted in gunmetal gray, has the full Cajun Pro Package and gauges out at 6lbs 10oz in DA and 2lbs 10oz in SA.

Sweet. Little did some of those Israeli surplus ducklings ever think they'd find their beauty and live happily ever after in the CZ forum.

I just realized last evening that I now have more surplus guns than regular CZs.
