    Yes the barrel should be lengthened, the emitter needs to be a tad bit smaller.

    As for the grip (handles), I believe they are more of a "brushed" aluminum rather than a polished aluminum (chrome) like the barrel, butt, and emitter... The gold accents are the end of the emitter, the little nub on the trigger, and the inside barrel (this is easier to dremel out and put a brass tube in it).
