Advice on refinishing an aluminum framed Sig Login/Join 
Picture of frogger
I have a Sig P220 Elite Scorpion in .45ACP. I love how the gun shoots, but I've gotten tired of the FDE look. I want to convert it to a durable black or maybe dark grey finish. I remember reading quite a while back that it was difficult to refinish an aluminum framed gun since removing the old finish could remove the anodizing and weaken the metal. Does anyone know of a safe way to do this and someone that is skilled enough to do it right?

"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Cera-Hide black or Tritanium gray by CCR. Don't worry. They will NOT strip off the anodization from the alloy frame.

Their house black might look nice.

Here’s my P229 in tritanium and my P228 in CPII/Nikote. Ignore the cat hair

I agree with everyone else, CCR.

For me they were slow and not very responsive in communication. But man, they did a GREAT JOB on my old beat up, W German P220. CCR is really good!

Same answer as above. (The responders to your query have a collective 56K posts on this forum. That alone should provide THE answer to your question.) Smile
