That consignment 1911 shows an amazingly fantastic finish.  Yum Yum.

Play Safe Out There

The Nickel finish 1911s from Cimarron were/are also very nice.

I don't know about your guns, but mine was already rubbing off after a week. The scratches on the slide were on me and my wedding ring, but the "quality bluing" was just thinking.

Well, now that you mention it, mine is wearing on the left side.  Also, after just one year my frame has turned very plum colored.  Looks a little unusual, but I like it.

Pitspitr:
I've had my Cimarron almost exactly 10 years. It does have some scratches and a place or two where I'm starting to notice the blue thinning, but it hasn't exactly been a "Safe Queen."

But I also picked up a Thompson Auto Ordnance 1911 to go with my 1927 Thompson sbr build, nice big sights. Don’t think I’ve ever seen the ATI.

Thanks! I did not realize the Auto-Ordnance sights were just a little bigger than the original Colts'. Gives me another option to look for.
