I got an email back from the engraving villa.
There might be some problems with the results of the thumb safety and slide release. They “cleaned” it from it’s dark grey color and remade the finish. But it’s a nickel finish which I don’t like.
They also told me that now they are doing to this finish a sand blasting (I think) to replicate the same metal effect that you find on the slide and on the frame.
I’m not really convince about the final result. But I can still print more and get it right next time. When I’m going to go there I will decide.
Meanwhile I need to speak clearly on the phone because some things seems to be left behind.
In January I shall pay them a visit to let them the medallions and take a closer look at how is going to far. By these picture they send me it’s not really that clear to judge.
Looking at it more and more I’m really not happy. I see at the begging of the extension they slimmed it down for what I believe they tough is a nice effect. But I really like it the way the Silverballer has it. For now this piece will be used as an experiment to test various finishes and with the next one it will be perfect.
