I'm looking to get my Taurus PT1911 duracoated to prevent rusting and fading. Is there anyplace in northeast Ohio that can do this for me? What do I have to do to get the gun ready? I would prefer that they take the gun apart as I am not 100% familiar with a full takedown. What will this cost me?

I did my shotgun myself. There's really nothing to it

http://www.duracoat-firearm-finishes.com. If you are not familiar with the complete disassembly then I would have it professionally done. I understand you not wanting it to rust but if it's properly taken care of it shouldn't be an issue. The price will depend on the person doing it and skill level. You should buy a 1911 book, there are a few real good ones out there to educate yourself on them.
