    Personally, I plan to carry mine. As to why case hardening - I just want something different, and not gonna lie.. To show off to my buddies. But, I'm starting to lean towards hard chrome for now. I'll see how BSoE's turns out and then maybe get an M8 or a P7 case hardened.

    I don't disagree at all with your comments. I think a case hardened look is very attractive and was curious about the durability. Until I researched it a bit, I did not realize it is not a durable finish for every day use with wear and tear. I intend to carry mine and will be looking at something different.

    I'll carry it sparingly in a leather holster. It probably won't see much range time -- I have beaters for that. If the finish gets beat up in a few years I'll redo it maybe in something else. I'm not concerned. If I was going to carry it daily in a kydex holster that would be a different story.

    IMO, which doesn't count for much is diamond like coating. It can be done in three styles. Matte, sheen or polished. Do a google search. A lot of guys on the 1911 forms have had it done. In the polished it looks like old school bluing but black. The middle looks like the P7 series factory finish. I've got a Zev glock that's had thousands of holster draws. It looks brand new. DLC.

    Another idea is to have the piston finished in tin. The gold colored covering. I think this would work wonders on the gas Pistons for carbon removal and reducing friction and wear. There are a lot of new technologies since these were manufactured.

    I don't get these buyers, a very nice 1-owner M13 just sold on GB for $2375. It had the matching box w/2 mags and manual. Why would this one be bid up to $2725?

    Because I looked at it before it sold.....unlike the ones that sold for $1900 AFTER I saw them.

    Might I point out that no one (not me, not you) owns these things forever.

    Eventually even the most rabid collector DIES and his/her heirs do what ever they want to do and there ain't do dah any of us can do about once we are gone.
