Default Cerakoted my Colt

I usually don't have time to work on my owns guns because im constantly clearing a backlog of other peoples guns, but I finally had a little time to work on one of mine.

This started as a stock 80 series colt (stainless). I did all the work including beavertail and slide milling for sights. Its my most used handgun, i shoot some USPSA matches and outlaw matches at least once a month. the stainless was getting pretty beat up. i also have a swamp cooler in my house which made the gun get a little surface rust.

I wanted to keep it kinda simple and classy looking. I mixed up a dark stainless color and accented it with tungsten grey parts. I added a fade to the grips too

Cerakote and Stippling
