    Here's my photo, still pretty new on the forum although I've been signed up for a while.

    Ruger Police Service Six, came to me as a basket case. Completely refurbished. Cerakoted frame MultiCam Green. Cylinder, cylinder release and hammer pivot is Cerakoted Green Beret Green (shows up better in natural sunlight).

    Nice gun and work. Don't let it get away.

    I still miss my old Security Six that I gave as a wedding gift to my brother - a good gun being as necessary to a new household as a good frying pan. I was glad to give a proven excellent gun as a gift, but I do miss the old girl.

    And now a bit off the wall. I did this for a customer for his daughter. Barrel is for a Ruger 22/45, the AR, when finished will be purple and black. The Cerakote color is Bright Purple (well duh! of course it is )

    I actually broke into the Pc world using the clear gloss. Been a huge fan ever since. They look "wet" and slick ,not to mention they shoot extremely well in all applications.
