Default Refinished Springfield Armory 1911-A1

I had picked this SA 1911-A1 kit up from a vendor on Gunbroker for under $550 shipped, the only thing it was in Olive Drab. I was originally going to have Technique refinish it for me, but I figured what the heck it's an easy one let me try my hand at it. It's refinished in Duracoat H&K Blue/Grey, something a bit different, I just need to touch up the front and rear sight with some black, otherwise I changed the grips and left all the other bits as they came, did a function test and all is well.

Here's the before photo.

Yes, I forgot to add that, used the stripper/degreaser they sell, then went to and airbrushed it on with an Atwata brush and compressor, was a good excuse to give those goodies a work out too since they've been sitting collecting dust.
