    Saw these CNC triggers some guy made on another site. I guess you cant buy em so I thought I would try and spruce up the Wilson I already have.
    These are the ones he made.

    Wilson trigger was a bead finish.

    Either the pic of your trigger isn't as good or you didn't polish as much but you did a nice job on it.
    I like to do this type stuff. Hey if it doesn't come out as you hoped,go buy another and try again

    I t's about like chrome in person. I don't know how I would get that to show in a pic. I was thinking of trying the slide next. SS might be too hard though. Reminds me of the old saying, " if it don't go chrome it":D

    If you're gunna do the slide,find a inconspicuous spot to try it out.Then if it's more than you want to do or just ain't working like you want,you can stop and won't have marks on top of the slide

    Send your slide to Cabot. I hear they only charge $1999 for a mirror finish.

    Dang. I coulda got a pretty nice 1911 for that. I did look into sending it out ( around $160 to $200 plus ) but it's more fun to tinker with it yourself.

    I was kidding. Cabot is famous for their levels of mirror finish on their 1911's which cost $5000+. I haven't heard of them offering aftermarket finishing.

    I totally agree that the tinkering is at least half the fun of guns!!

    I'll bet I can get a lot of dremel goodies and a couple pounds of compound for 2k.
    Then a guy could charge to do it for others!!
