This seems to be a fairly rare option. I have only seen one such example that popped up on GB in May 2010...haven't seen one since. Here are 4 pics I snagged from that auction, I wish they were better pics...no, I wish I had WON the auction!
The "HG1" denotes the High-Gloss factory stainless finish. IIRC, I bid that baby up to $1250 on the last day, but ran out of checkbook. I didn't record the final price, I was still too peeved that I let it get away. It was under $1500, IIRC.
Anyhoo, if anyone else has shots of a factory "HG" gun, please post 'em here.

CF – thanks for posting the info. on the Norwich factory HG1 designation. I remember that supermag when it was posted on Gunbroker and I knew I had seen HG1 somewhere else, but I didn't know what its meaning was. Then it came to me….it's on the 740 SRS I picked up a couple months ago! The gun has a high polish to it but I wasn't sure if the original owner had added their own finish or if it was factory. I saw HG1 on the box but I didn't know what it meant so I never paid much attention to it. Now I know – and it's a designated Norwich Factory finish!! She's a beauty!!
