    How about sending it to Robar in Arizona so that it comes back stripped, cleaned and for a decent price. That would be my advise.

    I tried that method on my nutsack one time. Didn't work at all! My nuts are still more chrome than my Jennings .22.

    This is one of those projects... that is NOT for the do-it-yourselfer.
    Send it to Metaloy and be done with it.

    Robar.... quick, easy, painless.

    Brownells sells a kit.. but it is not for the amatuer. You will get amatuer results. I would not dip my gun in battery acid though.... can't be good for the bore, chambers, ect...

    LOL, on how many 1911 forums are you going to ask the same question? I think it's been sufficiently answered. The consensus is unless you have a death wish or hate this gun send it to a pro.
