So, the Operator has been Cerakoted, and it's now complete.

Thanks again to Squad for the photos.

Hi Icolater,

 

I hate taking shots of silver-slided guns, especially when the light is intense,

they usually turn out Albatross !

but I gave it a quick go for you ;)

 

Surprised Nova/Anvil didn't release the Kimber parts in Silver as well as stainless steel,

they might be forced to this year ;)

For Icolater,

 

After getting a frame Cerakoted, the barrel-bushing seems to fit perfect initially, as the first half-turn is loose,

but as it tightens towards the end it will scrape the Cerakote finish as the last half-turn is extremely tight.

So your best off filing the small latch on the barrel bushing to avoid this.

 

This is a shot of Mr P's Operator when I rebuilt it after Cerakoting.

I came so close to being tempted to use a barrel bushing wrench to get it on, but luckily enough I didn't take any chances.

So all turned out well in the end.

Hey Squad, I love those CDP's so much, really amazing pieces, I did manage to sort out the bushing mark at the front but you can still see a slight mark, but no bigy, I have another TLE 2 build in operation so this time I wont make the same mistake.

Its those Gremlins I tell ya, they mess with my stuff at night while I'm asleep

A few more photos from a different angle into the light showing the difference (just about) between the Polished slide on the Series 70, the Cerakoted finish on the Costa Recon 1911 and the good-old reliable matt-coating on the PGC 1911.

Love that Delta, think it's the High Combat Sights and Commander Ring Hammer, I bored with seeing Novaks and Fancy Hamers.  Would look even better with a Hard Chrome Frame and Swenson Safties.

Ummmm, don't fill my head with ideas bigge ATM I can ill afford to send that frame off to hard chrome.

mmmmmm Delta Elite, I'm hoping Nove re-release their kit this year, or you can flog me yours K.A :P

Got my fingers and leggs crossed for a old type Meu and and Colt Combat but seriously doubt Nova or Pgc will ever do them older 1911's except for 1911a1's, should've bought them PGC's  when they were readily available bud and exchange rate two dollars to a pound, them were the days ;),   kicking myself for not buying the discontinued Pgc SA Mil Spec kit .

Old School MEU rocks had the WA one in a PGC Kit year ago ( will see if I have any pictures ), lovely simple fighting gun.  As for a Combat Comander, that would be fantastic.

 

Edit : Found some.

OK well it had to happen and was done as a commision for a friends daughter.  TM MEU fitted with Hogue grips, AIP/Guarder/Nova/KJW furniture. If you have a weak stomach look away now....
