    Not following what you are trying to convey. You have 3 separate threads with just pictures.

    Any reason why you didn't just post all this in one thread? It's hard to follow exactly what you got going on.

    I don't see anything ruined yet.
    I'm confused.

    When this pistol was received back from APW Cogan they were contacted about the condition.
    This pistol was fully and flawlessly prepped needing only to be hard chromed.
    The owner, Bob Cogan, first said that all incoming guns were belt sanded and buffed to ensure they were ready for plating. He gave no reason why and later denied having done that. He said, "couldn't have happened here".
    Further conversation with Mark and he wanted a chance to fix it.
    Much of my time is spent out of the U.S. so I waited until I was going that way and hand delivered it. I was insured that it could be fixed perfectly. I just smiled and said, " it's pretty much ruined now so you can try".
    Within a month it was back but I did not get to see it for a couple of months more.
    Another call to the owner and he said, "None of that could have happened here and that he was not going to do anything about it".
    Included with pictures is another Signature Grade that APW did a great job on.
    I was not so much upset as disgusted at the lack of them taking responsibility for their mistake.
    After I replied to the Thread by APWGM he did offer to send me a label to send it back. There is no way to repair it and my only recourse seems to be by legal means.

    Not sure how post pictures and text got separated. Text starts in first post. Post only allows 10 images and it takes more to show how they damaged it.

    @rmac

    When you go to the General 1911 section to post rather than click on the "Post New Thread" button at the top. Scroll down a bit, find ONE of the Four threads you have created, click on that post, scroll to the bottom and type your reply there, then click on Post Reply.

    You now have four different threads and it's going to be very difficult for anybody to comprehend what your trying to convey.

    It's no big deal and I'm certain a moderator will be along to clean it up and consolidate it

    Take a good look at the muzzle. The left flat us now much wider than the right one. One side has the muzzle rounded the other is flat. It is much more lop sided than the images show. Check the rest of the images and look at the edges and pin holes. Particularly above the slide stop. Some pictures show by reflection of light the wavy surface.
    Blow the pix up and look!

    The pictures of gun in the white before shipping are posted. I did not know how to continue the thread and started a new one thinking they would be joined by having the same subject line.

    Hey no big deal, we all gotta learn and when were frustrated it can make it worse.

    You can use a photo editor (such as Paint) to load one of your images into it and use a draw tool to mark the areas you want people to see. (Kind of like using an electronic Sharpie), then save that image and load it up.

    It's hard for someone to just look at a photo and see the defects.

    I do see what I think your talking about on the slide above the stop, but to the untrained eye it also looks like it could be a reflection.

    I hope that your able to get it all worked out.

    Happy New year!

    There are supposed to be a lot of pictures included. Both in the white and after it returned. Somehow they are in another post.
