the kimber eclipse comes 400 grit brushed stainless on the flats and black on the cures and recesses and fyi, the coating they use blows dick. one of these days im going to send it to a buddy of mine and have it sierra coated in the same fashion and repolish it.Did it come with a stainless steel and black finish, or was it all parked/blued carbon steel and you just removed finish from and polished the flats?
Lol... The lighting in my condo sucks ass (but it looks better on my phone than it does here).
Better be cause if you bitch again I will serve up a 1911adilla for you!
Thought about it, but i like the black so ima keep it that way for a while. Now the grips on the other hand are getting old and yellow soni think is high time i nabbed up a set of bocote magwell cuts and add them to the equation.I'd remove all that black off of there and make it full stainless
Love the cf grips!!!!ok heres mine, i have been carrying it for 5 years now and its save my life twice, once from a black bear the other time from a creep in the old city in knoxville. its amazing what a .454 diameter hole will do to scare the **** out of someone.

Figured I'd add mine to the thread. Had it a little over a month. All factory parts minis a 16lb recoil spring a Buddy gave me. I'm actually in the process of making a set of African zebrawood grips for it now. Gonna do some checkering on them too. I got one side fitting good just have to adjust the fatness of it. Screwed the other side up doing the counter bores on the backside. Gonna do a oil finish on them too. I will post pics when I get them done.
