    First was a Sig Mosquito. Originally had a stainless slide on it. I didn't like the stainless, so I changed it:

    Next was my Colt 1911. It was blued but I didn't like the fact that every time I touched it, my figerprints were VERY visible, so I refinished it:

    The Mosquito was done using OD Green from Norrells and the 1911 was done using their Semi-gloss black.

    very nice, I really like the OD green on your sig!

    Was that something you did yourself? how long did it take?

    Took me a couple hours. Prep time is where most of the time was spent. Also it took a while to disassemble the 1911, spray all the individual parts, bake them and then reassemble.

    Looks good! I just picked up an old revolver that needs to be refinished and I like the OD not sure if it would go good on an old revolver so I might try another color.

    NorthernBornRebel,

    Don't you know you should never put skull grips on a firearm? It makes you look like a blood thirsty, crazy person. ;)

    Nice work on the refinishing BTW. :)
