    Figured I would share pics of my "new" 1911 after picking it up today. SJS46 (on this forum) coated it and it turned out excellent! I am amazed at what SJS46 (steve) did to it! I cant even believe it is the same pistol! I wish I had before pics and then you can see how bad it really looked. Steve did a excellent job (beyond my expectations) and I will be going back to him in the future for all my gun coating needs!

    If you guys ever doubted that your old scratched up gun can never look "new" again, just give it to steve. He can truely work wonders!

    Thanks again steve!!!!!

    I'm not a big fan of two tone treatment, but this looks very nice indeed.:thumbup:

    It was coated with dura-coat. I was originally going for medium gray but the color was a last minute change as I liked it a little better. And yes, before someone chimes in, the front sight hasnt been installed yet.

    Nice looking gun. We have done a few 1911's as well in the shop and they turn out beautiful. Congrats.

    Yeah, the front sight is missing. I still have to put it on. I was excited to show it off and some of sjs46 good work. Im looking into a better looking grip setup but I like the way the hogue grip feels.
