I like the look of Ionbond.

Does anybody have thoughts regarding the durability of this, or the quality of the work that Springer Precision does?

Other suggestions are also welcome.

I have used them for XD/XDm trigger work and they are top shelf. I have no experience with their Ionbond, though. If your looking for durability, I would say Melonite or NP3 would certainly fit that bill.

Brian has a Ionbond finished 1911.

I looked briefly into Springer Precision. They're somewhere in Oregon I think.

Ionbond is a weird outfit. First, they wanted nothing to do with firearms finishing. Then they were networking with reps like one of the guys on Sig Forum. He says he now longer has a relationship with Ionbond. Now it appears they have some sort of working relationships with outfits like Springer.

I read recently on one of the 1911 forums that Ionbond here in NC will take pistol work.

Since I'm not currently seeking their work, I'm not keeping up with their idosyncracies.

If you do an Ionbond search on Sig Forum and you'll get a number of hits.

I remember seeing pictures of his, that's what turned me onto the finish.

For a little while they had their own gunsmith just to handle refinishing pistols and stuff, but they let him go back a year or so ago. I learned this from reading posts on 1911forum. Springer's apparently one of the main contact points between ionbond and the consumer now, and their reviews were pretty good (from google searches last night).

I'm just investigating options and don't necessarily have my heart set on Ionbond.
