I don't like the distressed look personally either. But the TRS is a beautiful gun. Look forward to seeing it's new look.

Yes Lou is going to pull some over time between builds, gotta love the Guy.

I had thought that I could live with the finish, turns out I couldn’t. So now I’ll have a used TRS, with CeraKote and a BEC rear sight for about what I could have bought a new one for. It’s still rather tight coming out of battery so I don’t think it’s been shot a lot. Will make for a great workhorse.

I'm here, you're not
Lou hit that one outta the park for you. Congrats!
You can get somewhat of an idea of how much use a LB has had by how much wear is showing on the barrel where the tight bushing sits on it. Sort of a smiley facy top and bottom.

That is sweet! Way to bring it back. The distressed look only works for me when its honest wear on bluing. Quick turn around from Lou as well.

Very true. Ive owned a few Baers over the years, there is very little wear present on this one. It had a bit of a pop coming out of battery before. It locks up like a bank vault again now. Not much work done to it, just a BEC rear sight and a coat of graphite black.

Very nice job on that gun! Not a fan of the 'distressed' finish myself. I like to work on my gun's finish by using them! Eventually they get the nice "well used" patina.
