Those look great!
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

It was done in NP3 finish.  In person it's not that different, probably just looks that way with bad photography. Thanks for the comments!

You are welcome for those blue grips Covert. As you know, those were in my personal stash for years in my toolbox. They have a very nice even pattern to them. The blue coloring intertwined with the black carbon fiber is “delicate” in nature, and those were always considered “The Best Ones” back in the day. They look great on your NP3 coated frame. A sweet R9 you have there Covert. . . . . . . Real sweet.  Enjoy it.

Looks great! I always thought the blue grips looked especially good on an all-silver gun.
