Does Colt parkerize any of their 1911's?

I've been looking at various places and on the Colt website and it looks like all their 1911's are either stainless or blued. I really don't like the look of blued guns much, so I'm wondering if they parkerize any of their 1911's from the factory.
Military I think were parkerized with commercial blued or nickled. Mine
orginal parkerzied, but needed everything but the action replaced. Matt
blued, rebarreled with new barrel link and pin, micro adj. sights, slide
tightened, and trigger smoothed. No one in my area did parkerizing,
thus the Matt bluing. After forty five years with many as carry, there is
some blue wear on the slide where it travels across the lower receiver.
It will always be one of my keepers:s0155: Used it at the police range
a couple of weeks back, and shot several magazines without a hitch shoot-
ing running tactics. Only hitch is it required more change outs than my
Glocks. Howdy, does it shoot at longer ranges. Perhaps in this case less
rounds may be better in some circumstances:huh:
