    Im assuming that rust is a threat leaving the gun naked like that?

    Well then, it becomes a question of "how long do you want to shoot the gun for."

    U know what some estimates of either would be

    personally i would love parkerizing... but i figure thats alot more than bluing in the price area...

    Parkerization will cost more, but it's much more resistant to scratches and wear. I saw one of those particular 1911s at a gunshop once. It felt fairly tight and the bore was OK but I had just purchased my stainless Sprigfield G.I., so I didn't bite.

    I love this pistol
    22 cal = cheap ammo
    its a good plinker
    all the parts match FTMFW... punched serial in all parts
    didnt cost too much... (~300) then handed down to me
    twas basically my learning pistol (taking down completely then putting all back together...(with no help) that was a bitch the firsttime....)


    havent shot it in a while tho... needed to get a new firing pin... i did, and thinking i am goind to have to modify this firing pin, seems as tho when the hammer is down, the pin will be applying pressure on the round...

    meh, will see in a few weeks when i go shooting.
