I am going to engrave my stainless steel 1911 slide and I was talking to a gunsmith about finishing and he said all ss slides have some sort of protective finishing applied from the factory.
Does anyone know if this is true?
What is the finishing norm for stainless after...
I'm in the process of ordering a Wilson Combat 1911.
They offer an engraving option but they don't provide any proof for the customer.
So, it's a little bit like buying a pig in a poke. :(
However, they sent me this email:
Custom scrollwork can be provided as a digital file...
