Kraaash... why would I send something of mine to another person that I am very capable of doing. The plan is to hot oil blue it, just didn't know if I was doing SS or black and blued. Want to get some blue/purple so show.

Iowa Fox, Home depot...

Bullet Bait... I like the fact that the sawn edges cross grain get darker. I like the shadowing effect. Using dyes is kewl, more work and you can feather the color in on good maple or walnut, to make it almost look like laminate.

Tell me about that "Ace in the Hole" peep sight and picatinny rail combo, looking at the same for mine. How do you like it? Installation should be straightforward, did you purchase that from Ruger? Sorry to thread jack, PM me if needed, just haven't seen any reviews on that specific model with combined rail yet.

I have one, I bought it from a seller on ebay for $60. The 'Ace In The Hole' peep sight is made by Williams - here is their pdf catalog.

Midway has them on sale for $49.99 and available right now - go here.

Super easy to install and use, comes with a taller fiber optic front post to replace the shorter, stock front post.

I found that the screw in peep aperture would work itself loose after firing many rounds, so I put a drop of blue loctite to hold it in place - also used a drop of blue loctite to help the screws hold the rail down without working loose. The adjustment screws for the peep aperture haven't seemed to be a problem.
