Of course, I meant "slide", not frame. The frame is the standard P7 dull blue. Love the fact you pick it up, automatically squeezing the grip, and it is good to go - pretty much goof-proof in a defense situation. I have been toying around with the idea of having night sights put on it, but have been "told" that they will not be as accurate - that HK does something special to "regulate" their fixed sights. Not sure why that would be, however.
