I've got one of those Royal Combat Commanders made by Talo. It has a finish only rivaled by my '56 Python. You can see reflections of trees in the finish where I took these pics outside.

I have to agree with the Talo Royal Combat Commander. I have never owned, or seen in person, a better finish.

jetman's Talo is one of the few blued guns I've ever seen with the 'wet' look. Amazing. Nkings ain't no slouch either. They all look great! That's very difficult to do while keeping the flats flat and the edges sharp.

Blued 1911s

I'm partial to blued guns. Here are some of my polished 1911s-

TALO (Colt)


Wilson (Turnbull)


Commercial Colt (Marvel rebuild of RL Shockey bullseye)


Volkmann


Take care, Steve

Blued Wilson

Thanks Wildfire,

The above Wilson was commissioned and sold by Top Gun Supply (highest regard for them!) as a Master Dealer. The bluing was done by Doug Turnbull's shop, using his charcoal bluing method. Turnbull does AMAZING things with blued metal. Below is another charcoal blued Wilson by Turnbull, but in matte finish (but polished controls) commissioned by another dealer. I can't seem to capture the color, but is is the most gorgeous and unique "gun metal gray-blue" I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy. Stay safe, Steve.

WOW! Those are some pretty pieces. And that's all I have to say, about that.

Well and a question. Do you guys shoot those or are they safe queens? If mine, safe queen all the way.

Shooters all- no safe queens

All of mine have been, and will continue to be shot. If I want to look at something, I'll buy a painting for the wall.

Out of respect, I do try to take good care of all my weapons and don't abuse them. And while I love blued pistols, my daily carries are either stainless or amour-tuff (except for one Baer TRS which is blued).

Stay safe, Steve

Well, since we're talkin' non-1911s, how about a 1903 Pocket Hammerless from 1920?
