I have a new SA TRP, and i really don't care for the finish. I've babied this gun. And no it does'nt have an idiot mark. Last time out at the range it got acouple of scratches on the slide, i don't even know how. I'm wishing i had got stainless now. Has any one refinished their 1911's. I'm not sure what i'm going to do. Leave it alone? Refinish with an other finish like NP3, Hard chrome, or send slide back to SA. I tried to add a new post in Gate Refinishing Forum, but i don't see anything being added. What say thee? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
