My CBOB's (pics)

1296 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  rebby
I have a pair of CBOB's (with sequencial serial numbers ;) ) that I've had customized identically, well except for finish. I posted pics of these in hard chrome a while back (just one, not the pair). Well since then I've discovered a frame crack in one of them so it went back to APW for repair. While it was there I decided to give the ceracoat a try. After all, I prefer an OD/black gun anyway so why not... Anyway, it turned out great! See some pics at http://rebby.com/hobbies.php?detail=pt-cbob (scroll down to the bottom of the page). The pics don't really do the guns any justice...

Rebby-

anyway, I really like the stippling job, esp on the MSH. Must help out with cutting down of the slippage. If I may ask, who did...how much...how long.

Bob at http://www.apwcogan.com did all of the work on these guns. I had a lot done all at once so it's hard to say what the charge was. Give him a call for a quote. Originally I had both guns done in the matte chrome. The green one had a frame crack later (manufacturing defect) so I sent it back and had it fixed. It came back greeen.

Here are few more details on the work that was done -> http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=114840

Let me know if you want/need anymore info. I'd be glad to share... Gotta run!

Rebby, looks good. How did you deal with the issue of serial numbers on the frames? Did you have them etched on depper or did you have them sent back to DW for re-lazering? That is the only thing really holding me back from doing plating and such work on my DW guns.

I had my CBOB hardchromed at Tripp Research. It fades the SN a bit, but it's still readable. The really cool thing was that they brushed the slide out, and there are NO markings on the slide. Looks VERY nice. You can view the pics at :

That wasn't an issue at all. The platings are very thin. The matte chome is <0.001" and the ceracoat is <0.002" so the serial number and my initials are easily read up close.

Can you tell that I really like the OD green? ;)
