    Refinishing a Springfield 1911

    I have a guy in the office who asked me about refinishing a blued Springfield 1911 and maybe getting a trigger job and getting a skeletonized hammer installed.

    I know nothing about that kind of stuff.

    Any advice from all you very informed DC posters?

    Springfield's generally have a lifetime warranty, why not have them do the work?

    I agree with Buckeye, Springfield has a fantastic custom shop.

    Springfield will do it for a reasonable fee... their web site has a custom build sheet with prices.

    Lou Biondo with Business End Customs (and a member of this site) could do the work for you. He doesn't blue, but he could cerakote the pistol for your buddy.

    I wouldn't want a plumber to remove my appendix. Nor do I want a crop duster to paint my car. IMHO, reworking a Springer 1911 isn't a an idea situation for on-the-job training. I agree with the previous posts who suggest the Springfield Custom Shop. They're exxxxxcellent.
