    I’m thinking about beginning the hunt for a 2010 Colt 70 series to use as a base for a future build. I plan on a two tone w/ polished DLC slide. With that being the goal - I’m looking for advice if it makes a major difference if I start with a carbon or stainless pistol? Stainless has the...

    Melonite and Ionbond. What are the differences? Pros and cons? Help an uneducated heathen out here! Making decisions on a 6" 10mm, Guncrafter No Name. For me this is big bucks and I want to do it right! :)
