Just received an email from Altius:
Legion Sobol finally arrived today.
I'll get it packaged with the Recruit and out to your FFL tomorrow.

And, pictures too ...

I called Marc after receiving his email,
he was packing my rifles for shipment while we spoke.

Marc described the blue finish as "not" a glossy blue.
"The hammer marks are still on the barrel" ...
so ... "how bright could the blue be?"

The bluing on the receiver matched the barrel finish - stain blue.
Like the stock, a stain gloss - not glossy.

Makes me wonder how a matte finish Legion would look like - flat black.

By the way, Mr. Sheppard said, when he spoke to a TGI sales agent,
no one mentioned of a choice between a matte finish or glossy rifle.

I'll have to reserve judgement ... until I see my Sable in-person.
