This is such a nice pistol to shoot, I decided to put some time and money into restoring this....but in OD green. Black oxide on the small metal parts, epoxy paint on the frame, mounted a rail for a red dot, and even removed the casting lines in the frame and barrel shroud. Not sure if I'm going to keep the hand grips original, or black them out as well. Wish I had taken "before" pictures because this gun was a mess!

Thanks, glad someone else likes the colour scheme, my better half's first response was..."but it's green" :( I think I will leave the grips as they are. They look good but feel cheap. I would like to eventually carve some nice custom wood grips. May have to save that for a retirement project.

That's exactly the final goal to achieve on this project. Definitely going to try and maintain the red tones in the wood too.
