Default 1911 Facelift

Giving my girl a new look. She was still running great but the finish was getting rough. Time to make her pretty again. This was my limited 10 competition gun. She's seen 20, 000/25, 000 rounds of .45. Went with a dark charcoal with silver flake finish this time. Doing the grips a wine color just to contrast. I think she'll look awesome

Gota let the finish cure but here she is with one grip just for contrast. I like the look but that's just me.

Can't argue with that man. There's something about having ole reliable with you. It's like a good mom. She earned her stripes.

Lol. My girl has been from black (original finish), orange, red and then a combination of both. Oh I left out sandblasted then just clear coated. We've had a lot of fun together. There's that part of me that loved beating people at matches after they asked what the hell I did to my gun. It's a 1911. Short of a big hammer or a torch you're not gona mess it up. I'm not worried about resale value because this girl will never leave me until I die. Then she belongs to my son who loves her just as much.
