Restored Pro Carry II

I bought this basic black Pro Carry II used about a year ago for $600. It was pretty well used and even had some rust issues on the exterior and on the barrel as well. I bought it hoping to have it Cerakoted the way I wanted it. I really liked the color scheme of the Covert II but I couldn't afford one. So I made one similar. I had the lower done in FDE and the slide/barrel/components done in graphite black. Had new Kimber Meprolight sights installed, and I picked out some unique VZ Grips to finish it off.

Costs:
Gun $600
Cerakote $150
Sights $100
Grips $75

Very nice. Looks like the frame color and the grips match really well. That is a good looking 1911.

Welcome to KT.
