Red Anodized-look Maverick

So Red Metalcast + Flat black accents + Gloss black cylinder + Plastidip rubber grip =
The pictures aren't too great, I'm afraid. I'll try and replace these with better ones later. What doesn't come through in these images is how gorgeous this paint looks on the gun. It really looks like a sports car, or fresh-spilled blood.
The slide is actually flat-black, but the protective clear coat leaves it looking like gloss...though somehow darker than gloss black. I still don't have the Metalcast stuff down cold yet. There are a few darker areas where paint ran.
Here's a closeup of the grip. It feels a bit sticky, but leaves no residue on the hands. It's just that nice of a grip. I used it on half of the butt as well in an experiment, but it's been a pain in the rear ever since I came up with the notion, and I won't repeat it with the Plastidip. The grips however, I'll continue doing with the Plastidip.
I've recently been experimenting with the seal-tightening method of placing a spring beneath the front fitting on the cylinder, (the rear fitting already has a spring) and I've had mixed success. Sometimes it seems to improve performance; other times it seems to halve the original range of the gun.

I've got to invest in some of that vinyl or plastidip crap.
