**What is in Cristo's 1oz ish box....??**

It's fun when a box really seems to fall into place for you.

Re: **Hand me a Lando Calrissian moment this afternoon**

Re: **Hand me a Lando Calrissian moment this afternoon**

Had to show the western sun shots of the blank as well as top of forgrip. Hard to tell from these shots but the Valkyrie's WE blank aesthetic carries over from the other series.
