    My CBOB has been a GREAT gun over the years. I left it with my dad for a bit as he was just getting into 1911s. He had some trouble with reassembly of the gun and put a nice scratch or two on the frame. I figured it was a good chance to get it refinished and wanted to try out bead blasting.

    Thanks! I was really impressed. I have been looking into possibly selling the CBOB as part of safe cleaning sale..but now I'm not so sure.

    Keep it, shoot the guts out. It's yours and it's paid for, so why get rid of it if you like it and it works.
