    I have a commemorative 1911 that I fired a few rounds through just to say I did. It has a few scratches and blemishes in the bluing and barrel that I probably shouldn't worry about. Does anyone have some recommendations for bluing kits?
    Yes...my 1911 has an idiot scratch. Its my first and so far only 1911.

    The very best cold bluing I have found is Brownells Oxhpo-Blue. It works very well and it's easy to use!

    I may have misunderstood, I thought he was going to go over the whole pistol. I agree no cold bluing will match the factory bluing.

    The slide, slide catch, and thumb safety, of your Para probably have a spray on finish, I took the finish off of one today and it took 40psi in an aluminum oxide blaster to cut the stuff.
