    Oh my! That is beautiful. The case hardening(which I'm usually not a fan of) really looks awesome on that Colt. I might have to add one to my little collection.

    Nice work! Can you do the cold case bluing look to a finished frame with standard bluing? That is sweet!

    Beautifully done! Can I ask what grit was the slide sanded to? I love that finish!

    That turned out great. I'm glad I had a chance to see it in your shop as it progressed. The Owner should be very pleased with the results, I know I would be if it were mine.
