I like the look you got there axxe. If you do coat it and have a cheap toaster oven, I really like Norrels Moly Resin. I found it to be pretty durable and forgiving as far as getting good even coating out of it. I like the oven baked finish because I'm too impatient for Duracoat to fully cure (it's a good product though).

Anyway, it looks good.

thanks Doc. doing a coating of some sort is always an option. right now, the more i look at it, the more i am liking how it turned out. it wasn't the finish i originally was trying for, but sometimes you accidently find out new things and like them.

It looks like what my barrel on my BP looks like. Nothing better than a gun with character. But I liked the chrome, did I say that already. I like shiny. Oh I saw the most beautiful colt python stainless the other day, never saw anything shine so pretty. I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much.

a Colt Python in stainless steel would be sweet! Python's in blue are just as nice though. wouldn't matter which finish, as i would be happy with either one.

Ya done good axxe!

I like the change and it looks like a great job!
Now find you some Sambar Stags or Rattler hides for the stocks! (That's what I'd do, YMMV)

thank you to all who have replied. the comments were much appreciated and the suggestions and ideas are also much appreciated. just makes me much more motivated to do another one now!

getting high praise from fellow 1911 enthusiasts like the ones here on the forum, it inspires me to want to modify more of them! thank you all for the replys and comments.

I saw one yesterday just like yours before you removed the Crome, I wanted to buy it but the show was in Indiana and me from Kentucky couldn't buy it. But while I was there looking at it for about the 5th time another guy from Ky. Was being told he couldn't trade his pistol and I bought it. Why I don't know I just had to buy something I guess.
