Cogan/APW, or who, did I miss it?So the plan for now, beavertail, front and back straps stippled, and a “reliability package” (everyone calls it something different trigger job, feedramp/chamber polish, etc), and since the frame’s going to be worked on I’m trying to decide how to have it refinished. Cost is going to be more than what I paid for the pistol, but when it’s done I’ll have what , to me, will the perfect carry pistol.
Over the years, I've had a Kimber 1911, 2 P7M8s and a Super Blackhawk, all done by APW. Matte rounds, brushed flats, and the work was superlative. The Super Blackhawk is the only one I have left, and it is still beautiful, aside form the light smoke rings on the cylinder face.
The nitrides have an excellent performance reputation as well.
