I have been talking to some of you about getting a 1911 refinished. I have looked at Hard Chrome, Black T, Hard Hat, NP3, ETC..... and really have not been able to make up my mind. I want something that is highly corrosion and rust resistant, Durable but holster wear at some point doesn't bother me( I actually like it). I am hoping you guys can provide some examples of finishes that you have had done and where you had them done at. Thanks for your information.
