I finally received my DW razorback last week, and the whole time, Ive been trying to figure out what the trigger is made out of. It appears to be aluminum, but I was wondering if anyone knew exactly? Also, what is the did the finish on the trigger look like when you first bought it?

I ask this because my trigger has a very odd flat finish on the side of it, almost white in color, and I was wondering if i could polish it up a little bit to match the gun? It just would be nice to know the material before I go polishing on it. For you non owners, the razorback comes with a "solid" trigger. Ive just never seen a 1911 trigger with a similar finish.

Mine appears to be an anodized alloy of some type, like what is found on current S&W revolvers.

I thought I read that they were flash chromed aluminum.

I know I just got used to the difference in the colors on mine.

yeah, well either way I probably don't want to go polishing/sanding on them if its anodized or chromed.

Another question I had, what holsters do you use with your razorback? I tried sticking it in my blackhawk kydex 1911 holster and it liked to leave very minute scratches on the side of the slide. So I was thinking about getting a leather rig for it.

I don't carry mine and it has never seen a holster yet (nor ever will). It is one of the original 150 and it just goes from the gun bag to shooting and then back again.

Sorry, I cannot help you out here.

I'be had mine such a short time that I haven't found a holster yet. I am thinking of getting a Ken Null Speed Scabbard (horsehide).

I use a Bianchi Black Widow Model 5 for my RZ10, got it for $50.00 at sportsmans warehouse. It's a nice leather piece.
