Re: Rust Bluing Tips?

Your welcome sir, I suspended the larger parts, the frame and slide, the smaller parts i used a steamer basket. Also the pot i boiled in and the basket are stainless steel. I am by no means an expert.

Re: Been tinkering

I took the sharp spots off the thumb safeties and the grip safety stippled the front strap and triggergaurd for better grip in the heat and stippled the top of the slide lightly for personal aesthetics also i added a set of night sights. This .45 now feels more like mine than 1 of a million.

Re: Sharing: My 1911.

What is the finish you used on this 1911 and how is the finish holding up. I am doing some stippling to my ria, and am trying to decide on a finish. Leaning towards rust blue or cerakote.
