    Hey everyone
    Right now I own a O1980RG "Rail Gun" (not crazy about the name but it's a great shooter and looks good). My next 1911 purchase will be a Colt and I was wondering which model had the nicest brushed stainless finish. Based on pictures it looks like the Special Combat Government is the nicest but I doubt I'll get one anytime soon, there's the XSE, Series 70 (I'm not getting a second Rail Gun, gotta mix it up a little) etc. I only want a full size gun by the way and NO ALUMINUM.
    Thanks all!

    The funny thing is I was originally going to PM him but felt like this information should be made public so that the same question doesn't get asked again lol.

    I wasn't happy with the finish on my XSE so I bead blasted it to a frost finish.

    You gotta give me something I can buy off the shelves ;) The first one is a nice chrome finish and your custom finish is very nice too :)

    Fair enough, I'd go with the Hard Chrome Model O1970CM.
