Default Parkerized vs blued

Whenever the gunsmith installs my beavertail he will of course have to modify the frame a tad bit. He said tht he will blue the filed areas after getting the frame the way tht it needs to b. My 1911 is parkerized so will the area tht he blues look funny or will u b able to tell?

I have a parkerized gun too.. I think it will look weird if it has blues parts... Like the color would be off contrast. Tell him to just make it full black or something..?

Aluma Coat is a spray that could be used
(but I like the look of blue or stainless aftermarket pats against a parkerized firearm.)

Mr. Wray, it's Cerakote. The only way to get it off is with a grit blasting cabinet. Application is straightforward, but does require some knowledge and equipment. See the Cerakote site (and/or my The M1911 Complete Assembly Guide) for details. In very brief summary, you grit blast, clean, spray and bake. Alternatively, there are certified appliers. It's about the toughest stuff going, and as I said, there's no easy way to get it off once it's cured.

Regards,

Walt
