I just got it back today.

I still need to find a mag release and slide stop that will work in stainless. There are a few spots that I'll need to hand polish a little more but overall I am happy with the end results. The internal parts and barrel along with everything you see was coated.

I installed the EGW bushing and guide rod plug today.

Its being sent out in 2 weeks have Trijicon night sights installed.

This, plus cost.


Also, I've got an engineering diagram somewhere here that details that the RIA "novak" style cuts actually have a few minor fit differences; may want to be sure that the place you're sending it to for NS can take care of that.

Very nice. I have the same questions as above? Is that coating similar to Robar?

This is almost exactly what I've planned for mine, except I planned on going hard chrome. Tagged for updates on pricing

I'm digging it a lot.
How does it differ from the old-school nickel finish?

I really like it! Your post helped me decide which coating to use to "highlight" some parts on my new 1911.
The pricing isnt bad either, $50 to do the slid stop, safety levers, grip safety, etc- and it looks much more durable than something like the paint on stuff.

how many rounds down the barrel before treatment? I always wondered how they prep used barrels prior to ionbond or NIB

I dont think Ionbond will do the interior of a barrel but not 100%
