    Refinish for my stainless 1911?

    I have a Springfield 1911 in stainless steel that polished to a bright finish and was wondering what the best finish would be to have it refinished in? I was thinking of having it bead blasted to more of a matte stainless finish. But I'm wondering if there is a way to apply a parkarized finish once its bead blasted,or is there any way to blacken stainless steel?,if so what are the wait times? Thanks.

    Yes, you can have Stainless blackened.

    The one that I am sure of is Melonite. You can learn more about it here: Coal Creek Armory - 865.966.4545 - Military, Law Enforcement, Civilian

    I believe you can also have it coated with the spray and bake finishes like Dura Coat.

    I had Robbie Barrkman of Robar blacken the slide on one of my stainless Colts back in '86, it's held up well considering it was my EDC for 18+ years.
