Weathered! Couldn't stand it, had to do it. :lol:
I used some steel wool and very fine sandpaper to wear away some of the finish. I tried as best I could to match the level of weathering in the big picture of Mal in the first volume of the Official Companion book. Can't recall the page number right off the top of my head.

Here's the backstrap.

An obligatory before and after.

I'm really happy with the way the weathering came out. There are some subtleties the camera doesn't quite show, but it's a good representation of how the gun looks now.

Very pleased to have this piece in my collection!!

Just curious, have all the Model 47A's made it to their new owners?
What was the final production tally?
And the total Model 47 production run, as well.

I'm also interested in trying to find out
how many Sidkit Firefly Mal pistols and
how many Sidkit Serenity Mal pistols were made.
(I THINK the planned Firefly run was 250 and the planned Serenity run was 50.)

I've noticed that after some of the future 47A owners put their Sidkits up for sale,
there has been very little movement in the metal Mal pistol market;
ie., I haven't seen either "for sale" or "want to buy" ads.
Just as a matter of personal curiosity,
I wonder if the metal Mal market is basically done at this time.

I am still interested in a metal Mal pistol at the right price; however, lately I keep spending my extra funds on Hellboy stuff.

Anyone got some Hellboy stuff to sell :lol:

Thought that I would share some pictures of my 47A.
It has, what I am assuming is the generic weathering - and came with a spare magazine and the COA that shipped with the original batch.

I picked this up recently - but I have been asked not to reveal where I obtained it from.

This struck me as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, since these were sold and done WAY before my time here on this forum.

Thanks for looking - I do have more pics - but I have not uploaded them to my computer yet.

CB, the 47A's were shipped with NO weathering. They were 'factory fresh' as it were. Each purchaser was given the opportunity to weather their own pistol to their own liking.

As I remember it, both Namebrand and Badger offered a "weathering option" for purchasers.
I'm sure they'll weigh in with verification.

Yes, Bronson and Mike are correct.

Unless ordered, the finish was factory fresh, no weathering at all. Just the deep brown patina.

This came from somebody in North America - so I am assuming that Namebrand did the weathering.
