    Enjoy your A/O 1911-A1.

    If you want to age those grips?

    1. Clean'em with mineral spirits.
    2. Spray'em with flat black Rustolium BBQ paint.
    3. Immediately wipe them down with a paper towel and mineral spirits, until you get a clean towel.

    Being you are in MA, you are really limited. Check out four seasons in Waltham, probably the best deal you are going to find. If you end up on GunBroker, there is a dealer in Quincy that does cheap transfers. Make sure what you are looking for is on the roster

    That would do it!
    You’re not the first I’ve heard of doing this. Enjoy your new pistol.
