That is a beautiful gun. I think I would put it on a less reflective surface.

More of a gray? Black seems to lose the image as I have tried that before.

Here are a few more.







I will try a blue or maybe smoked galss to add reflection.

My only complaint about your initial offering is that the blue trigger lock looks washed out.
