I was originally going to pull the trigger on this release but the only difference to the previous version (which I purchased recently) is the blued receiver. If the treatment had been applied to the other parts, I'd certainly have purchased this new model but, for me, the difference is too slight.

Hmmmm, and after this, we'll see the "final ultimate edition", and then the "revised final ultimate edition" ???

It appears to have a shiny finish on the receiver... and not the matte look (and weird) look of the last edition.... looks better to me than the last one

Definitely better looking than the Retail Pro edition and the price is the same. It's just too similar to the Retail version for me to "double dip". If a mass produced fully blued version came out, then I'd be seriously interested.

The barrel won't be blued on this one? Shocked

I may be wrong but I'm under the impression that it's only the top receiver that's been blued.

I believe that DVD is correct.

I think you're right.... hmmm... this is one of the few things that have always bothered me with (some of) these: barrel and receiver not having the same finish.... in some way it just spoils the illusion

I own the 2014 Pro Retail version and although I love it, the curiosity of seeing it side by side to this "blued" version is too good to pass up. I can't fathom owning two of these so will probably only end up keeping whichever one I like better in the end.

This new release is supposedly 150 total in the world. I remember reading that the Pro Retail version was limited to 50 pieces in the US, but couldn't find anywhere that had a world-wide total edition size. Does anyone know this info?

I've been impressed that the Pro Retail has held (and slightly increased) its' value over the last 18 months...
