    My pawn shop rescued Springer. Late 1980's model. Was missing front sight, grips, grip safety, and had a boogered-up grip bushing.

    Back up and running now:

    Still have plans for this one. But at least it is alive and kicking again.

    I bought my first 1911 last week, a Springfield Champion. It's used but new to me. I will probably be refinishing it soon, any suggestions?

    Send it to Birdsong for the Black T, its one of the best black finishes available.

    I've got it on my RRA.

    Roguard and Black T are my two favorite black finishes.


    ...or send it to Robar for the Roguard black finish. The slide of my TGO1 is finished with it.

    What's the turn around time for something like that?
    I was thinking about Duracoating it myself to save some dough, but I'm not so sure how well it will hold up to frequent use. I have a rifle I refinished with Duracoat but it sits in the safe.

    It depends on how backed up they are. The tGO1 comes standard with the Roguard and I order the RRA with the Black T, so I don't know for sure. I have heard 90 days or so.

    Depends on how much you want to spend and what kind of finish you're looking for.

    Hard Chrome, Ionbond, or Melonite are the best treatments out there in terms of wear. They are expensive though.

    Black T is "OK" IMHO but notably one of the softer finishes and overpriced considering you can find someone to Cerakote a gun for around $150. FWIW I've owned guns with both types of finishes.

    Robar's NP3 is also an excellent option, not to be confused with Roguard. :cool:

    Don't mistake Black-T for the other "baked on" finishes. There is a reason why the other finishes cost less. They simply don't do the same thing. Even when you get some wear on the high points, Black-T is still protecting the metal. It is actually impregnated into the metal during the refinishing process. Black-T is guaranteed for life. It's very slick - to the point your gun will be self-lubricating. It's easy to clean a gun that's finished in Black-T (basically you wipe your gun clean with a cloth).

    My other choice would be Robar's NP3. It does everything that Black-T does, except that it's a dull gray color.

    I will echo what others say about NP3. Its also an outstanding finish. I was only listing the black finishes, but NP3 is what is on the frame of the TGO. Roguard is on the slide. Its a two tone Robar finish and the best finished 1911 I own.

    Thanks for the info guys. I definitely want a black finish so the np3 is out. I'll have to contact some of these places to find out some pricing and turnaround times. I also need to factor in price to ship it there and back, I think it has to be over nighted both ways which ain't cheap.

    Yeah, I figured you wanted black.

    Good choice for a carry gun.
