    But it is a beautiful 1911, I really like the contrast between the grips, the frame, and the slide.
    Thank you, I appreciate that.

    So what was the specific treatment, and who did the work?

    Does it shoot any differently for you with the flat mainspring housing?
    Thank you sir. I had Accurate Plating & Weaponry, apply their "brushed hardchrome" to the receiver and it's small parts and then had them do the slide in what they call their "Alpha" blue.
    PLATED FINISH: ALPHA BLUE FINISHING
    " ALPHA BLUE Finishing". There is another option in Blue finishing called Alpha Blue which is a combination of Bright Finish and Brush Finish. In other words it has more luster than the brushed surface but it is not a high gloss "bright" finish.
    Then I fitted the Harrison trigger on it's return. As far as shooting differently between the Arched and Flat, the arched use to raise POI for me, anymore, I don't notice it, must be an age thing.

    Thank you.

    It is most certainly a shooter. I thought I'd refresh it's looks so it would be a "beauty is as beauty does" kinda thing.

    Thank you, Gerald.

    Yeah, I'm kind warming up to those old antiquated 1911s.

    Looks good. I like the contrast..

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..
