PT-1911 painted slide today...

Let me know what you think, I saw a paint scheme similar to this and reall liked it. I really like the stainless look and did not want to go crazy on the paint.

I also finished up sanding down my right side ambi safety after the dremel job to smooth out the cuts.

Wow, I really like it. I wish there was a way to go from blued to that particular scheme.

Thats a very nice way to add accents to the slide.

I actually used Krylon high temp grille paint (1200 degree)... Used 3 coats, waited about an hour then baked it in the oven at 200 degrees for 45 mins to let it cure.

You can refinish a blued gun, just takes alot more work though

You've got me thinking now.

You should do it to all the accessories on your gun. I think that would be pretty darn cool.

Very nice. Have you considered sanding of the lands of the slide serrations?

I was thinking about that, doing the slide stop, safties, and hammer in black as well.

Lol, I picked up the Krylon at Pep-Boys today for like 6 bucks, much less expensive than Duracoat. It feels like it will wear pretty good also. It most likely will not be as tough as duracoat would be but I am pretty careful.

How does the right side safety stay in if it's not contained by the grip?

I must have gotten one of those "lucky Taurus" safties... My safety clicks and sticks very good. I have never had an issue with it ever even getting loose... I also trimmed down my left side in more of a "Wilson Combat" mode, makes it much more comfortable.

My safety is in there "TIGHT" so no worries of it ever coming out!

That looks EXACTLY like a double stack Para I had.
