I went out today and bought an Armscor 1911 Tac II in 10mm. Pretty excited as it should arrive Wednesday next week. It's also my first 1911.
I've done a lot of reading about 1911s over the years and there are two things I'm going to want to do to this pistol:
1. Have the internals gone over and de-burred, polished, etc
2. Get a better coating on it than the standard parkerizing it comes with.
The 1911 is a great pistol, but it does need some work and care to make it as reliable as possible - so what I'd love to know from you fine folks is who you would recommend I send the pistol to for said goings-over?
I had looked at gun coatings and noticed that Robar offers the de-horning and internals work as optional extras when you send in your pistol for a coating (that NP3+ sounds nice, but it's not cheap!).
