Refinished Clark Customs Meltdown Colt Compact

My Compact Meltdown was in dire need of refinishing. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it until I bought a set of stag grips to fit it and then I knew it needed a high polish blue. The work was done by Dietrich Gunsmithy in Otis, ME, in addition to the polish and blue they checkered the front strap, fitted a S&W checkered MSH, removed the roll marks from the slide, recrowned and polished the muzzle, and fitted a brass insert to the front sight.

I think it came out pretty good, what do you think?

This looks very nice to me. Did it turn out like you'd hoped?

Vzerynice. There's an Officer similar to that in the NRA museum. Not a Meltdown, but the bluing and grips are similar. High polish n all. Loos good, but your looks better. I love Clark guns.
