Saw their banner ad in the board index and decided to give them a try.

I started with a Rock Island M1911 A1 Tactical II chambered in 10mm. I have about 400 rounds thru it so far and it is one of my favorite guns. My one complaint is the factory finish which has proven to scratch very easily. I believe it is a parkerized finish. I noticed AFC was local so I emailed them to arrange to drop off my firearm. Tim (the owner) responded very quickly and after a few emails back and forth I arranged to drop off my pistol on a Saturday morning. The plan was to Cerakote the slide in Tungsten Gray, the frame/magwell in Titanium Gray and the controls in black. While the gun was apart I also had Tim polish all of the trigger components to eliminate all trigger creep after the takeup. 3 Days later I got the call my gun was done.

The finished result was exactly what I was after. The color combo contrasts nicely with the stock VZ grips. The lighter picture was taken in direct sun were the colors look a bit brighter. the trigger also feels great, just takeup-wall-break. I'd recommend AFC to anyone looking to get their firearm customized.

Bummer! I thought you were wanting to sell it!

I've got a 2011 in 10mm and it's the cat's ass.
