    Oh, Beautiful. No "Before" pics to go along with it ?

    I didn't know about FORD's but after seeing your Kimber, I immediately went to their web site and WOW! They do some fantastic work. They should be happy you posted those pictures. But no happier than I bet you are with that pistol!

    I'm seriously considering sending in a 1911 to be done up in black nickel. Never heard of them before, but seems like a nice lil outfit they are running...

    Thanks All.

    I'm pleased with the way it turned out and would definitely consider using them again.

    It took about 10 weeks. Which seems really looooooong when you're waiting. :)
