I just received this pistol in the nickle finsh 4/09/16 and I have to say it is prettier than the picture.Comes in an olive plastic padded case, like ekols. But this even includes a cleaning brush, now because of the nickle finish you will have to wioe it down a little using asoft sotton or micro fiber rag a little hoppes gun oil and ready to go the finish is flaw less and the mag release is more like the real ppk locks the slide back once mag.is empty it is just a beautiful pistol ,the grips are checkered matte black and really feel good in the hand I mean it is almost impossable to describe the workmanship ,fit & finish of this pistol in words. This is one of the most beautiful front firing 9mm.p.a. blank firing replicas i have ever seen . Thanks agaian Blank gun Armory for agraet, great product Thanks Kevin Neel Baltimore MD.
