Still working on trying to get trigger guard screws out & trying to get the seller to ship the bands to me said they came in the listing but didn't ship them seller said was sick & would find them then he seems to have fallen off the face of the earth been waiting for couple weeks now & nothing there will probably be some negative feedback left in a week or so I am still hoping seller will ship them but doubtful :(
