    Thanks. Auction. New rig with minor handling and a crisp mirror bore, un-oiled grips. The auction pics don't do it justice. Handled and stored right. Different pics......

    Tks Denny. The GP.35 is my favorite pistol. If I was going to collect and shoot one pistol only, that would be it ;)

    Nicest looking one I think I have ever seen on the internets. I'd chrome or nickel it to keep it nice. There are sellers on ebay that have some attractive grips for sale as well.
