Seeing that definitely just added a few more points to get a 1911 style pistol next. She came out great man, I especially like the satin black instead of the polished.

Outstanding, but I've come to expect nothing less from you.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Whelp, I guess I need to do a yearly update on my Taurus project. I was not very happy with the new satin finish. It wasn't the look I was going for. Then the gun spent most of the time in the wood shop being a test dummy for new grips. It got covered in sawdust and unfortunately, some of the small parts started getting some surface rust. Needless to say, it was in bad shape and needed to be rescued.

So this time, I did the research to do the kind of bead blasting finish that I originally wanted. I wanted a shiny silver color that was buttery smooth instead of rough like it was before. Bought a small sandblaster and used 80 grit glass beads at 40PSI on the compressor. I bead blasted the whole gun and the results were better than I could have hoped for. This thing is like brand new again and exactly what I wanted the first time!
