Well, aside from my disdain for gander mountain, I am happy about finally receiving my 1911. I think it turned out great. I'm going to put about 500 rounds through to break it in and then take it to get a trigger job and Black T'd.

Sweet looking gun. I've gotten good service from all the Kimbers I ever owned. REALLY like the grips and the right side of the slide!

Awesome!

very nice! why get it black t'd now with the finish still as good as it is?
To prevent finish issues in the first place that would complicate a future refinish? Refinishing a pristine firearm is easier than refinishing a rust bucket. I like the look of a nice blued gun, but the rust prevention sucks.


Thanks for sharing, btw. I never get enough 1911 porn.

That's it exactly, I sweat buckets when I just think about how hot it is outside. If I don't black T a firearm up front I have huge rust issues. Plus I think the finish makes it easier to clean and maintain.
