I ordered 2 MAKs from SOG. I should have heeded the warnings of others about their shitty grading policies. One looks realitively in good shape. I would say 90%. There is holster wear and some pitting of the slide but the bluing is mostly intact.
The other looks like its seen a lot of service. The muzzle is well worn and the slide has most of the bluing worn off for a holster. The grips must have been bad because it was replaced with a brand new one, The action also looks like its been fired a lot.
I paid the extra fee for handpick. And I must have got the gorilla handpicker.
I hate hearing about shoddy buisness practice....
Live and learn I guess ..
I think the grips are an import thing. They all have those stupid black grips. (all that I have seen at least) The Pierce grips are a nice addition.
