    Yes one day. I won’t have it till spring 2020. I have to sell my home here move to Oregon first then drive to PA and pick it up. This was all planned before I found out I’m getting the 1911 along with other firearms

    Nothing wrong with a stainless 1911. Polished up with wood grips they look mighty purdy.

    That’s the set up now. I just never have been a fan of stainless. I have a stainless 357 and I can live with that one​

    Because it was your grandfather's.

    Leave it
    Shoot it
    Keep it
    Take good care of it

    Pass it on to your son...

    He’s alive and well and he said do what I wish it isn’t his anymore. His shotgun and hunting rifle in the other hand will not be modified in anyway and will strictly be hunting guns. And I got a daughter lol.

    I have a WWII-vintage Nazi-contract Belgian Hi Power that I got from my father-in-law. He got it from his father who got it from a nephew who brought it back from Europe. Someone had coated it in stainless - seems to have been the thing to do back then. When I got it, the finish had been scratched and worn so I opted to restore it. Found a gunsmith in Florida to do it - took months of slow chemical etching to remove the stainless steel and not remove the markings on the pistol. Years later - after my father-in-law passed away - my wife and I were going through a file folder in the stable and found a manila envelope filled with papers....in it were the original capture papers from when it was brought back at the end of WWII. Score!!

    By the way, I live in PA, too.

    Before and after.

    They are the only ones that would possibly do the job you had to have done in Fl anyways and have it almost if not perfect. I have had them do two guns over the yrs and they're perfection driven!

    I am almost positive you are right. The computer I was using back then shi* the bed and I lost all my old emails from the time. I had checked the web site and it looked familiar.

    They were exacting - took months to slow etch the stainless so that I didn't lose the Waffenamts. I came back magnificent - no longer the original finish...but it wasn't with the stainless, either.
