I have a SA GI 1911 that I'm slowly working on. Eventually I want to apply some sort of spray on finish. Right now I'm looking at Gunkote. My question is will the factory parkerizing be sufficient enough that I can just degrease and spray. It just seems a little fine to me. Should I blast and re-park first for a rougher finish?

Thanks!!

Dano523,

Thanks for the reply. I'll check to make sure all the pieces are truely parked. It looks like the grip safetly may not be so that will probably be blasted and parked.
Duracoat was the other finish I was considering but the long cure time is what concerned me.
