    I like the look of the original blue 1911s. How much do you think a smith would charge to blast a park'edSpringfield GI and blue it? I guess a lot of the small parts would have to be blued to, and it would all need polishing between the blasting and the blueing.

    Does anyone foresee any technical difficulties in having this done?

    No, it's not hard at all.
    All you have to do is fill out the check and sign it... the gunsmith does all the difficult stuff.

    So nobody actually has any idea what it might cost?

    Any idea? Somewhere between $100 and $500 plus shipping... Depending on how picky you are. There's basic bluing and then there's fine, very carefully applied bluing.

    If you want to keep your warranty intact, send it to the Springfield Custom Shop. They will blue it for $85.00 ($25.00 return shipping)
