    Color Case Hardening

    I'm familiar with the pros and cons of various finishes, but I'm considering a 1911 with a Charcoal/Bone Color case hardening as the finish. What are the pros/cons of this particular type of finish?

    Thanks.

    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    I had seen the Oly... Nice gun! I like this one better: Colt Combat Commander 45acp 4"custom : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com But his starting price is a bit...er...insane, even if it is one of the best looking 1911's I can remember seeing in a very long time.
