Definitely ouch. I know this does not answer your question but in order to keep your Garrison yours Id cerakote slide black or burnt bronze to keep it nice for a long time.I need some advice on repairing a scratch on the top of my 1911 Garrison. It has the factory hot salt bluing, the top is a satin finish. Must have scratched it placing it in the safe somehow. My holster is leather and very well maintained. Scratch is about an inch long, and pretty fine.
More like a scuff. I'll replace the slide if I have to. View attachment 3707
