    Are there any local business that refinish firearms. I have a 1911 frame that has some nice rust under the wooden grips that has obviously been their for a long time, idiot me.

    I ended up going out to Canby to meet with Jake, the owner of Twisted Firearms LLC. He took the time to write some very detailed, long emails to answer my questions. He earned my business!

    He is going to apply a flat black Moly Resin finish on the frame, I didn't have him do the controls to save myself some money and because they didn't need to be refinished anyway, I will happily post a pic for you when I get her back.

    Hope I'm not stepping on any toes but here are the pics. I must admit that I'm a bit of a fan of the way it all came together.
