I've got a stainless S&W 1911 that I would like to make grey or black. Anyone have any suggestions as to who can do a good job of turning this silver thing grey or black.

I have inquired about this matter before with wilson combat in arizona, you can find them on the net.

They offer the polymer type armor tuff finish which is better than parkerizing, they also parkerize its cheaper. They said that all they would have to do is beadblast the stainless finish, I guess to rough it up some before applying the finish.

It should work fine, I would imagine that its much like a Sig p226 with a stainless, blackened slide; or a sniper rifle with a stainless blackened barrel.

I'm gonna send my stainless 1911 into wilson when I get some cash and have it two toned with armor tough finish.

Yeah, hell whatever. I suppose I confused AR with AZ. Iv'e only placed phone orders so I never paid too much attention.

Now it all makes sense though, So thats why they all have mullets in their catalogue!

The guy with the scatter gun has an interesting mullet.

You might also consider Rocky Mountain Arm's Bear Coat. It's the teflon finish that Les Baer uses on their pistols and rifles.
