I was all over that dark gunmetal look.

However, the pictures area, especially compared to the regular black edition, don't quite have that same luster.

Definitely more realistic appearance, i liked the idea of gun metal grey but i wouldn't buy it over the black. I wouldn't buy it anyways as it is just a re-coloured K-3 and my K-3 is working just fine in black

Damn That Zvonimir Tosic guy  -  He beat me to it  !!! 

His thread (posted some 13hrs earlier than this one) is  HERE

Guess we should use that one and close this, no point having two posts for the same topic!

I did check to see if anyone had posted this news - Obviously didn't check hard enough lol

Kind Regards,

Michael.
