I recently sold a G2C because of the rough textured finish and told myself that i would only buy anoher if it was stainless. I carry a G2C daily thats black but the finish is smooth. Now with a problem that has me thinking, a friend just bought a new black G2C. It has the rough finish too and he is selling it, its never been fired, he was given one from the back and he couldn't check it when he bought it, only the display was he allowed to look at. He has a stainless on order now and has offered me the black one, he said he woud take $125.00 for it with one mag. he wants to keep a extra mag for the stainless. I don't like the finish but the price is tempting, what would ya'll do? thanks for any help.
