    Refinished. I haven't seen one that way from S&W.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Refinished in this case is usually "de-finished." The ones I have see pix of have had the Melonite bead blasted off the slide, leaving the silver colored stainless visible. Check Dan Burwell's site and see his variations of the work, some partially blasted, some with only one area of the slide blasted, some with only the controls blasted. www.burwellgunsmithing.com
