I agree! Their engraved version looks even worse if that is even possible............................I just looked at those on their site. They posted this photo of their "Woodsman" in what they're calling their Royal Blue Finish. I can't decide if it's just terrible photography or did they let the shop foreman's five-year-old grandson dab the finish on with a paper towel. And are those scratches on it or what? That pistol looks like crap. Nine-hundred bucks? No. I'd buy a used Ruger first.

Saying "I don't think it looks very good" wins the trophy for Understatement of the Day. It looks horrible...but the more I look at it I'm really thinking the photograph might make it look even worse than it does in real life. Standard needs to hire a new photographer, because whoever they're using now is clueless when it comes to product photography and post-shoot image processing. This is just wrong.Interesting...........Not for me! Looking at the engraved one, I think they could have done a better job with their presentation piece for photos. I don't think it looks very good.
