Not sure if this is the proper place for this, but here goes:

Does anyone have a carbonia finished pistol? How durable is it? I have a Colt 1903 and a Walther PPK that are bare metal and in desperate need of refinishing. Neither, other than being what they are, are collector grade pistols. Carbonia would be correct for pre-War pistols, yes?

Pics, if you care to, would be appreciated.

Carbonia blue would be appropriate for the Colt since that's what Colt used prior to WWII, but as I recall, Walther was using the modern hot salts bluing process back then.
