This is the one I got in the Christmas contest thanks to Murff and Mike. I've  had it done for a little while but wanted to wait until I got a new decal from OCP before I showed it off. I soaked, sanded, cleaned and polished every part. A few guys said I should have tried to polish the original paint first and honestly I agree I should have. My "jump right in" me got ahead of thinking me. However I hope I did a good enough job on the paint to do it justice. Also was some discussion on whether or not it had a black band being a 12/51. It very well could have but deciding to polish the metal was a better call I think. 
I haven't fired it yet but will soon after I get done staring at it. Lol.
