They said it was medium high polished, hammer and trigger case hardened and had rubber grips with a grip screw so you could actualy remove the grips. Here is what showed up. All matte blued and no grip screw. They were able to lower the retail price 100.00. It is very well finished and has the best double action trigger I have ever used but...does anyone know how to remove the grips. I want to put different grips on it.
