Hi,
I am building a 1911 and would like to know if I have the slide a tight fit do I have to remove .001 of an inch for the cerakote? Is there a standard or do you just sand off the cerakote if the slide doesn't fit on the frame?

Following. I was about to post a very similar question. I want to fit some new parts and since I dont have/want a stainless gun I think cerakote is my only option other than blueing.

I mask frame and slide rails before cerakoting but you can just remove it from the tight areas using sandpaper.

yep just cover the rails or any place you don't want the cerakote. plain old masking tape work fine. I also put slave pins in the frame so I don't have to ream the holes

I’ve seen people spray the rails to help tighten a loose gun up. Which he’ll I’ve done it before. Lap that **** back in place after it’s been baked

No spray paint for me. Tried it and stripped it.

Blueing, hard chrome, or electroless nickel are my only choices I guess.
