So I'm in the beginning stages of having a 1911 built using a Carbon frame and slide from Caspian that I purchased many years ago during a group buy. I have a good idea of the parts and bbl I want for this build but I'm still on the fence on what finish I want to have done. Options I've seen so far is bluing, parkerized, hard chrome, black chrome, NP3, etc. and all the differences between them. This is being built as a shooter so it will get a lot of use in all seasons so need something durable and functional. What has been your experience with finishes on custom builds? Any recommendations that fit what I'm looking for? I can see pics of the options but nothing stating how well the finish wears.
