I have a customer that is shopping for a 1911 for me to engrave. I looked at the list but it is in need of help. What ? 1911s are good to cut or at least mediocre in the stainless variety? Maybe looking at a blued variety also.
Suggestions?

Rodsta,
I recently engraved a Stainless Colt MK IV Series 80 - the slide was as tough as anything anyone would want to ever engrave. I spent nearly as much time sharpening as I did cutting. The frame was not nearly as bad.
If someone wants another one engraved, it will be at least double the cost for them.
