Indeed, they are!  I've got a few more old ones I'm going to dig out; remember they were shiny too!  Just hadn't looked at 'em in awhile.    :)

I'll settle for the reflections off polished stainless.  ;D
  But I do know what you are referring to, I had a Colt Diamondback and it was a beautiful finish.
I think in the day Colt had the best looking blued guns.

Yep!  Prefer stainless too, but just happen to have a few old blues.    :)

   The .45 colt defender that I enrolled in Bearcoat finishing school had a truly nasty looking dummy mark. The gun is stainless, so of course the mark really showed up. When I talked to the guy at Bearcoat he assured me that the mark "would go away and never show up again". So far he's right. There's no sign that the scratch was ever there, and no sign of it in the new finish. I realize that it's only been a short while, and I don't know that it will never come back, but so far so good. I LOVE Bearcoat!!       Gene

Glad you like that Bearcoat, Gene, and hope the scratch stays gone; it should.

  I had a guy tell me that he left the idiot mark on one of his 1911s and to prevent it from happening again, he started putting a piece of tape on that area during the removal and installation of the slide lock and has not marked any of his guns since.
  I never tried it but seems like it may work.
I have never had a problem with leaving a mark on any of the 1911s I have taken apart.

Good for you, John; that does seem like an excellent idea!
