Thanks for the link, now I am tempted to send a 1911 in! I wonder how the OD green or gray looks on them? Thanks again.

OD green or gray what? Grips or finish?

Oh, I see what you're talking about. The Tactikote finish colors. He's got a picture of a Colt Python that someone had him Tactikote in black, if you can believe that. But, it looks good.

sorry about that, i didnt really clarify what i meant, but yeah i looked at there site and seen they do other colors, yours looks really good and very tempting to do to mine, i was just curious as how the other ones might look on a 1911, I think the OD green might be kinda cool! So how long did it take for them to do it, and how do you go about shipping it to them?

I did a dura-kote on a 1911a1, flat black slide, desert tan frame. Still working the bugs out of it. I think I did okay. It got a lot of looks at the range. Pics will come when I'm finished.

If he "mined", it would have probably set him back far less.
