My 1911 build is coming along well and I’m getting to the point of thinking about the finishing. I plan to have a local gunsmith blast and Cerakote it (black on black on black – everything black).
Right now, I’ve stopped the preparation with 320 grit sandpaper thinking the blasting will take it the rest of the way for a semi-matte black Cerakote finish.
Is that true? Or do I need to get the surfaces up to a 600 grit sandpaper finish?
