Oven Baked 1911
while surfing randomly on google looking up 1911 trivia i found this gem listed in the search results. it fully falls in the WTF?!??!?!?!! category. it is a forum posting:


Ok, so I've read several different posts about the method of detail stripping your 1911 (parkerized), coating it with vaseline, and then slowly "cooking" in in the oven. Well, I tried it today, and it smelled very bad. It came out with an orangish film on top of the parkerizing. I did it for 4 hours at 350F. I am now trying to scrape the film off with my fingernails...Perhaps the Vaseline had some sort of additive that burnt?

Funny- I do not recall coating your 1911A1 with Vaseline and then baking it for 4 hrs as being in the -10 manual. Must have missed that. :rolleyes:

Someone should tell him the only way to get the orangey stuff off is to put the pistol in a concrete mixer with a 5 gallon bucket of gravel, and tumble for 4 hours. :cool:

Not to be an elitist, but there ARE some people too damned dumb to OWN a gun.

I always cook my Vaseline 1911's at 300 and then sprinkle with a little cyan pepper kick it up a notch..Say it Emril....BAM!

Man I never heard of baking any petrol stuff on any machine with moving parts. What's it supposed to do?

7 pages so far over there (like a bad car wreck- you just HAFTA look!) Post I liked best was the .45 talking-

"Oooh, the new guy's getting me out! We're going to practice! Can't wait!...

...what's that? Vaseline? Why? Wait... that's not a gun safe... AAAAHHHH!!!"

(half day later)

" (extends shaky hand) <surely he's taking me to get help...>cough<...>

(dunks in brake cleaner)

"AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Bralggg..ggllabbble..aaaah! I'm rusting! Brrrrblagl..I'm rusting!!!! (brutally smashes head against side of container) Why?! >SMASH!< Why?! >SMASH! SMASH!< WHYYY-HY-HY?!!! >KER-SMASH!<"

(18 hours later)

"...>cough<...>cough<... I'll do it...>cough<...I... I'll talk>cough<... >wheeeze...rasp...<... ......whatever you want..."

(submerges in ENGINE OIL!)

"BARGLE-glaaable->HACK<! Gladblebarge GAAA! >Gasp!< Nazi! You're a freakin' Nazi!!! BLARGLE-BRALGLE-BLEK..."

(8 days later)

"... ... light?... ... is that light?" ... "Oh GOD it's YOU!"

Oh the Humanity...
