Joe...I did get in touch with Alex. He is going to ship it with the black Alumagrips installed and the Shredders on the side. I am really looking forward to seeing it. Alex seems pretty happy with the build based on the way he was talking. :)

Cool deal. I can't wait to see it and am looking foward to seeing the Melonited twin of it. Two Guncrafter No Names have got to be better than one shouldn't it? :dunno::whistling::)

Thanks Brian. Alex called Dave this morning and suggested the black Alumagrips. Dave and I pondered about it, and I decided to get both those and the shredders. If I end up with the Melonite gun too, I'm going with the olive Alumagrips that are shown on in the pics, like yours. Those really look good on the Melonite finish.

Ooooh me too. Problem is much like topshelf 1911s, I can only afford one really nice one. Currently sporting an Omega Seamaster. Was going to get my Brown for my 40th bday 6/1/11, however, I moved that up to my 39th. :supergrin:

Decided to get a nice watch for my 40th instead. Really want an IWC Portuguese Chrono, but sadly won't have $7k for it, so I think I will "settle" for a TAG Carrera. :thumbsup: (...unless I spend that $2,500 on a No Name).
