My wife sent out my pistol for my 10yr. anniversary present and it finally came in. This 1911 was the first pistol my wife bought for me so it's kinda sentimental. Let me know what ya'll think. I think they did absolutely wonderful job!

Great looking indeed! From the first picture though I thought this was a "Quack made me do this" thread.

Whats the details on the finish? Hard chromed frame? Or a stainless frame and a armory coat slide?

It's a standard SS frame with an Ion Bond slide.

I had the following done:
Beavertail with ring hammer
Lower & flare ejection port
Extended ejector
Retro rear sight
Dovetailed gold bead front
Match bushing fit

The slide was done with Ion-Bond and I'm pretty sure he polished my thumb safety and slide stop to match the frame better. I'm not 100% sure, but I think he tightened the slide to frame fit.

Nice gesture by your wife.

Yep! We agreed to help each other out to a certain extent. She "guided" me to a nice ring she "might" like and I "guided" her to a couple of nice 1911's on the internet.
