    Hi i have a 1911 (Parkerized Trigger,Hammer and Hammer Strut) That i was trying to remove the parker but i did ****ty. However I was Successful at removing the parker finish from the Barrel it is beautiful and it seams like the slide functions more smoothly now.

    I tried polishing off the parker finish on the Trigger,Hammer and Hammer Strut it didn't seem to come off at all. So then i got some very coarse all the way to very very fine sand paper to sand off the finish and i got so far i even tried aircraft paint stripper DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT THIS STUFF I USED TO REMOVE PAINT OFF SOME WHEELS A FEW YEARS BACK. But anyways i gave up on sanding and polishing it looks very crappy and it seems like the remainder will not come off.
    So i was wondering since there is no machine shops near me at all i researched online and yellow pages. I was wondering if there was any type of service where i could mail in the (parker Trigger,Hammer and Hammer Strut) and have the parker finish removed and polish the parts to a mirror shine?????

    I know there are refinishing service like to get glock parts refinished in chrome and such so there has to be. This is my ''Do What Ever I Want To Project Gun''

    Do you think it may be more efficient to buy new ones?

    I don't know of a mail in service myself.

    More Expensive to buy new ones

    I already did my research and i cannot find any Stainless Steel Trigger, hammers with Struts the Oldschool Widespur is what i am looking for not that skeletonized crap. I also have searched online all over for a Solid Stainless Steel Trigger not the Skeletonized Crap.

    Yes i have thought and searched online for but there seems to be no maker of these parts in the style and finish i am seeking. So i guess i will just have to get the parker finish removed and have the carbon steel polished to a mirror shine instead.

    I'm a little confused here. AFAIK, you can NOT parkerize stainless steel.
    So if you get the parkerizing polished off, you will have shiny carbon
    steel parts.

    But you say that what you want is stainless steel parts????:confused:

    Polished carbon will have the same appearance as stainless right? I think the OP touched on that in his last post.

    Let me make this understandable i couldn't find any solid stainless steel triggers, Widespur Solid Hammers and Hammer Struts. But i wouldn't mind taking the current parts and getting them mailed off to some service where the parker finish can be removed and polished to a shiny beautiful. I already did this to the Barrel by just taking a sock and Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish to the barrel for about 45 minutes. It came out EXCELLENT. I have tried Polishing and Polishing the other parts i mentioned and not a bit of parker came off then i tried aircraft paint remover and that had no affect either. It wasn't until i took very coarse to very fine sandpaper is the only thing that took off some of the parker finish. but only some i am at the point where i can't get certain little nooks and crannies. So i need to send it off to a service unless i find some Beautiful Stainless Parts i mentioned.

    yes brownells was sold out i even called to verify out of stock status.

    I have a Taurus pt 1911 that I polished the trigger hammer and slide release. I used a sanding stone 320 grit then I used some 400 polish compound then an arkansas soft stone then a ceramic stone and some mag polish and a dremel tool. A sharpening stone will work to get the finish off ad then polish till desired shine.

    In the end you will probably spend as much shipping your current parts off to a refinisher.
