As far as finish goes, your gun is made from carbon steel and finished in satin nickle. It can't be re-finished in stainless, as stainless is actually a type of metal that is usually polished and then left without a finish, like your Gold Cup. Since it's carbon steel you have a lot of different finish options available, you just need to pick one that's appropriate for what you intend to use the gun for.
You rock. Thanks! So I intend to carry it. I even originally planned to leave it the way it is..finish wise. The only reason why I'd finish it is cause of the Technicolor when I swap out all the parts I mentioned.

Either I live with that, or why not..make it beautiful and carry it.

If that's the case, what finishes are good for carry on a 1911? My SIG I think is nitron? My SA is Cerakote. Which I don't like -.- I want a metal based finish. Not paint.

Any ideas?

SIG 1911 XO / SA 1911 custom / Colt Gold Cup / SIG P226 e2 / Browning High-power / Walther PPQ / Beretta PX4 Storm / G34 / G19 / G21 / G22 / Kahr CW9 / S&W M-19 / Hk USP 40 / Rem 870 / Rock R. AR-15
