My main interest has been in 1911 style pistols. These are two of my "older" 1911's which were built locally and used for IPSC matches. Both have seen quite a bit of "match" time, and I could not find it in me to part with these when I stopped shooting pistols competively. I am happy I decided to keep them.

Caspian Tactical .45 ACP
The "Tactical" .45 needed to be tuned and my friend, fellow shooter and Pistolsmith, who admired this Colt Combat Governement slide for such a long time, I decided to give him this ,pretty hard to find, slide for the work that he would perform on my pistol. As I have said before, this pistol has great sentimental value and has a definite place in my meager collection of pistols. So my pistol received a new fitted barrel, fitted Caspian slide (in the white) and new Bomar adjustable sights. The work was excellent and this "gun can shoot" but the slide would rust eventually without some kind of finish.
So I searched the Internet for about a year, then decided... I wanted to go with George Rogharr, Firearm Refinishing in Florida. Something told me that this is the person to go with! From the first email, I knew THIS was the person for my treasured pistol. George is so personable, I'd like to consider him a friend. He responds and keeps you in the loop the entire way and he does it on a timely basis. I felt very comfortable from the git go dealing with him... Well, the day came and the slide was done (much faster than I expected) and sent back to me. I could hardly wait to have this slide back and see when it looked like. The wait, over, and with the slide in my hand, it was a "work of art" with a beautiful blued finish on the flats and a even matte on the rounds. This was MORE than I expected and so tickled with George's workmanship.
So the Caspian Tactical has NEW LIFE and gorgeous to boot!!!
