Alright, well I've had this beauty of a firearm for a week or so now, and still have not gotten to the range yet with her. This is my first 1911 and so I wanted it to be a beautiful yet functional gun which is why I went with the stainless. Now where I am having a few thoughts and questions is how hard will it be to maintain the finish without all kinds of scratches, and markings? I've done a fieldstrip while following the instructions very careful as to not mark the firearm in any way but I cant help but see that it is VERY easy to get light handling scratches on the finish. I make sure after handling it with clean hands mind you that I wipe it off with a microfiber cloth to lose the fingerprints etc and Im noticing that even while using a MF towel I am still seeing the handling scratches. Is this something that is normal that I will have to deal with, or is it something that I can do prevenative without having to send it back to be refinished once a year? I guess since it is not a planned carry or duty weapon and just a range gun that I want it to stay as pristine as possible. Thoughts? Any and all help is appreciated!
