    Well, decided I couldn't get used the the OD frame on the G19 (I couldn't find a black one in stock so I just went with the OD) so I decided I was going to sent it off to get duracoated or dyed. After doing a little reading online, I realized I could do it myself with some RIT universal dye. Went to Walmart picked up a bottle and went to work. Took about 45 mins total with degreasing, stripping, simmering and putting it back together. I think it turned out pretty good...what do yall think?

    Looks great! I would have traded you a black g19 for that ugly OD one you have.

    Thanks guys...and Shorts. ;) I'm happy with it, I was comparing it to a buddy's black G19 and neither one of us could tell the difference.
