    Waiting on a trigger and grips to come, but the 3rd iteration of the Garisson frame is done. The 1st two just did not fit me right. So here's a sneek preview. Basically, a blued version of what I did to the RIA, so now, I'll have a black (blued) damascus and a white (stainless) damascus. The RIA is sporting buffalo bone grips, this one is getting smooth, black buffalo horn grips.

    Thanks dao. I just used sandpaper. Some have commented that the salt blueing on these is not as durable as it could be. I do think it came off a bit easy as compared to others I've stripped in the past. I only messed with the external finish, leaving the factory stuff everywhere not visible.

    So, in your climate that would mean you'll need to keep it well oiled? I do like the look, regardless. With or without the cool Maori pattern you made on it. If you get bored with it, you could consider stripping the slide in the same way, without the swirls, which would highlight the frame's pattern. The finish makes it look like a very old gun with lots of wear patina. You do do unique!

    Saw this on another site. I think a K9 or P9 would fit there nicely!

    I put 3 layers of super blue on it, carding off with 000 wool in between each, then coated it twice in Rennaisance wax. Hoping that will protect it adequetly. I could have kept going with the blue as it was getting darker with each application, but as you pointed out, it has an antiqued look where it's at, so I stopped there. Gives it a 2 tone look too. Good idea about the slide. I'm hoping to keep it pristine, but can certainly match it up if ever needed. Thanks for the positive words my friend! 😀

    Dang it man! Why did you have to say that? I thought I was about to be done with this madness. Your words had me looking around and I discovered the Cabot ďSerenityĒ. Looks Like I will have to make a twist on that one. Iím going the etch their slide pattern on a stainless, but instead of the matte everything below it, it will all be mirror polished below it. Not sure when I will do this as I promised to finish whatís on my plate already, but you just created a ton of work for me (joking, I appreciate your sparking some ideas).

    If you're going to do the slide Bird, think about just stripping it first and seeing how it looks. I just have a feeling that it will be very appealing with that patina look, and no swirls, because the frame has them. You can always put the swirls on it later.
