    Does anyone have one (or other 1911) that has had a melt job. I would like to see pics and find someone who would be recommended to do this kind of work. My stainless Officer's model has a few sharp edges and I think it would be a nice gun to have this done on but want someone who will not screw it up.

    Thanks for the input.

    I'm having a radical bevel job, as well as some other things, done to my SS TRP as we speak, at the SACS. I'll definately be posting pics as soon as it's done, but it's a good 8 weeks out.

    Beveling and smoothing edges. It's more apparent with something similar to Clark Custom.

    Too much of a good thing is still too much.

    I really made a norinco smooth when I built it piece by piece for my daughter. It took over a year to get it just howi wanted it to be. You can do training with that pistol and never cut or rough up your hands. I can't imagine how much a year of filing sanding and polishing would.cost at a high end shop. The result is a gun that my daughter will have her whole life and remember sitting with me at the kitchen table learning about how every piece fits and functions as I make her gun part by part.
