    This really is quite an amazing bargain that Maddy345 has come upon.

    This fellow's prices are super reasonable. I've looked a couple of others doing Cerakote, and he is definitely outdoing them on price by a good margin.

    Plus, his turnaround time is only 2 weeks. Other places are quoting anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks!

    This may be too good a bargain to pass up.

    Less than half of what it costs to send a handgun to Robar to get refinished.

    Such a good deal!

    All Sig pistols look a lot better with a nice set of wood grip on them. That is a huge improvement over the factory plastic grip.

    I upgraded the grips on my Sig with a set of Coco Bolo grips from Hogue:

    It was $154 total ($44 of that is the return shipping). Remember I said he quoted the one color price even though I asked for the two color price and he honored it. If I had paid the two color price it woudl have been $30 more, but even then it is a killer deal.

    Very nice looking Sig. I was expecting to see another Custom Creationz job. Good to know there are options for cerakoting

    That is an understatement, to say the least.

    Prices from companies like Robar are well over $300 without shipping.

    Geez......My thread came back from the dead. I've been carrying it since the day I posted this and I can tell you it no longer looks this good. Now it looks like a used tool should.
