Again, I'm open to anything as long as it doesn't depreciate.
Imo that ship has sailed as far as to depreciate the value of your Super Carry Custom when you changed it from being two-tone, ie: from original. But it still has value to you and maybe someone else if you ever wanted to sell it. Personally I don't see the issue with yours having black sights. Mine was Cerakoted I like them.
Short story: I have a old Detonics Combat Master .45, I was tired of looking at it's old coating my cousin had put on it a long time ago (bought it from him years ago). Some purists on the Detonics forum openly stated I f'up and killed it's value, I didn't care, it was beat up and scratched and I was tired of looking at it. Members here said the new Cerakote looked great and I like it a lot. I wanted it a little darker silver but it looks great and I'm cool with it. I will post a before and after pic.
