I just purchesed a 1911. It is beat up a bit. looks to have a bad chrome job done on it. can not make much out on the make numbers or anything else for that matter. lol all i can make out is united states property on the right side just under the slide. Anyway I would like to refinish it. strip the chrome and make it black. Is this possible or even feasiable? And I would like to try this myself. Any comments or concerns?
