Pro CarryII Finish

I have a Kimber Pro CarryII and the matte finish on the slide is fading rather quickly.It is 2 years old and I have used Birchwood/Casey Gun Scrubber to quick clean it.The frame looks like it did when I bought it and I was wondering since the slide is steel and the frame aluminum is that the difference? I'm getting it re-finished but will I run into the same problem next time and should I change cleaner to something less abrasive?? Looking for help in StLou..thanks

Welcome to KT Marshall, Captain Skyy, Jeff and Louis. I'm sure you all will fit right in. Do you have a UC you would like to trade for a Stainless Micro 9?

Mini, you're a lead paint eating baby right ? This may have been my first post, duel at that, that I ever made on KT.....I have even changed my username since then...

FYI....I did have my PCII stripped and Cerakoted into a two tone.....

I remember that day very well, a little voice in the back of my head told me to ban that group that Saturday morning, they were potential trouble makers. But I was sucking down a cup of coffee and said I'd do it later........... been almost 4 years and I'm still kicking myself in the butt.

Hey Mini, I just checked and you never even said hey, hello or wazzup when you joined KT. You just strolled on in without Chuck's.......

That's because in typical Capt. Skyy fashion you posted your "Pro CarryII Finish" thread in the "New Member Introduction" sub forum instead of the "Kimber 1911" sub forum where it belonged.
