    Beautiful! NP3 is one of the BEST finishes imho...and it looks SO sweet! How long was your turn around time? I haven't sent one to Robar for some time and wondered how long your wait was. I am reallly wanting to send in one of my 1911's...and I think your picture might just have convinced me! So THANK YOU!

    Last one I sent was my Beretta...

    NP3 is a great treatment. The best qualities of nickel, mixed with some Teflon!

    Notice, too....it's a Series I.

    Good looking Kimber, it's a shame they don't do that same melt treatment for the newer CDPs.

    That looks great! I'm having Chuck bobtail and refinish my CDP Pro in a stainless colored Cerakote. Your's turned out great.

    I was noticing that they really backed off of the melt. I like the "bar of soap" look on these pistols.

    Yeah, the new CDP IIs don't have nearly as pronounced a melt.
