Allen, I think you may have made a mistake. I looked at the photos you posted from GB in the other thread and the photos from the Phoenix site, and the photos from this posting. Other than some subtle lighting differences the finish and wear looks the same to me.
Where is this 70% to 90% sudden change in the finish you describe in the other thread? Near as I can tell the only thing the Phoenix Bros did was put the gun in a holster and fake the second mag. The gun looks original and unmolested IMO. And yes, the P bros were asking too much for the ("rig") with the faked mag but all their stuff is overpriced so no "fraud" or surprises there, you get a gun, a holster and two mags. JB
