This component has an interesting story; this is the slide for a model 1911 pistol. In 2010 the customer was about introduce their first 1911 model. Because Bel Air had worked on improving many of the finishing processes for the customer’s manufacturing, we were invited to take part in the development of the manufacturing processes for the new model and all of its components.

If you are unsure what equipment and media you require to achieve your desired surface finish, then send us your part, and we will evaluate it and provide you with a metrology report.
