...so, I came here to ask for info on it.

WHO DOES THE GREEN COATING ON PISTOLS?

I've seen several 1911's done in green here on AR15.com, and I all of a sudden (that's not good) had this idea of taking my Beretta 96 and having the slide and frame done in olive drab; the attendant buttons, hammer, pins and levers remaining factory Bruniton; and THEN getting a Stainless Steel regular length bbl.; all wrapped up in the Hogue grip...

I KNOW this may sound demented, but, I got the idea while looking at the SEBR and the Swedish Mora Clipper knife I just ordered.
A 'set' in green/black/stainless formed a picture in my warped mind.
Please assist me in descending further into gun madness!

...also posted in GFD.

I believe that Wilson Combat offers a Armor-Tuff finish that comes in OD green. That is probably what is coated on the M1911's that you have seen.

Mac does a range of colors, including OD green. I've seen his work, it is good quality. Good prices too.

You can do it yourself with Brownell's Baking Lacquer in O.D. for about $15.

Just like Earl Scheib used to paint any car for $99.95.
