I just finished putting this beauty together last night. Hard anodized dark red scales, hand made c260 cartridge brass liners and a titanium keyring spacer for strength. This is the 'fanciest' one I've ever built. I had to grind the lugs on the inline Philips to get it to seat well, but its got nice snap. With all the springs in this one I had to make a compression jig to bend them in order to get the final scale on. For 2 or 3 layer regular ones I can bend them with my fingers. I see why other modders don't recommend going past 4 layers in a mod like this though, the pressure on the backsprings really adds up and I cant imagine doing a 6 layer. I think the brass has a sweet look with the dark red. Cheers!
