I am contemplating doing a M1911a1 for the fun of it.

Cold blue works ok if you use the right stuff and do it right. It will never look as good as a hot blue. Not sure how you would clear coat bare metal?
Bluing is not normal clear coated you protect it with a thin coating of gun oil.
If you are going to cold blue You want to use
Brownells Formula 44/40
Brownells Oxpho-blue My choice in cold blue.
If you go to rimfire central and look for mossbergman (in the mossberg section) you will find the best way to use oxpho-blue.
