    Ford's Black Nickel Finish?

    I'm considering refinishing a P7 of mine in Ford's Black Nickel. Here is a link to pictures of a 1911 so done:

    Black Nickel Finish

    Does anyone have experience with this finish?

    In performing my due diligence I find that Ford's has an outstanding reputation as a refinishing shop, but I can find very little in the way of users reporting how the finish stands up over time for an everyday carry piece.

    I would be refinishing the P7 with it just for the heck of it and to have something different, and it would be carried daily.

    Any experiences with it? Photos would be greatly appreciated also as my search of several gun forums has turned up only a few pictures.

    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.

    Someone on here - duke somethiing - I think his user name is 'imthduke' or something similar - Has a P7M8 done in that finish...

    And it looks awesome...

    Not sure how it would wear, though... Hopefully he can chime in.

    That Black Nickel Finish is sure something to look at. Heck, I wouldn't mine having my revolver done in that if as stated here already can take the test of time and carry.

    Thats what I was thinking. I have a S&W 649 that would be REAL tight with that look.
