I like everything about my Chiappa 1911-22 except for the finish. So, I had a local gunsmith refinish it for me . . . .





I originally purchased it in 2009, and it has over 4,000 rounds through it. My sweaty hands wore away the original black finish around the grip. This is a DuraCoat, Colt Gray, finish. My 12 year old son considers this "his" gun. We'll see how well it holds up until he is of age.

Very nice! I have one and have enjoyed shooting it. If you don't mind, please tell what it cost to make it look that nice.

I had it done by a local gunsmith who has a small shop. He charged me $100. I was originally going to ship it to Jim's Gun Supply, in Baraboo, Wisconsin, but that was before I found out that this local gunsmith does refinishing. Jim's Gun Supply charges $125 for a handgun, and I had already been in contact with him about my Chiappa. He told me that he is very familiar with the peculiarities of the 1911-22

Looks good I have one with the threaded barrel and extension. I'll put a pic up of it so people can see the difference in finishes. If you don't mind me asking about how much did it cost for this little procedure?

Nice looking finish. I plan on getting a 1911-22 soon.
