    I love case coloring, especially when it is done correctly. Turnbull does it that way.

    Question...Won't the colors wear or fade quickly with regular holstering? I'd never considered that treatment for a carry gun. I'm interested to hear how it does after time.

    Scott... it"s a gun meant to shoot and holster, i just acquired from a forum member a NIB late 3rd gen SAA 32-20 in custom box. The gun is beautiful but i took it out and shot the hell out of it.. will the CCH wear and also the blueing ,yes but why stare at it when you can use it as intended. Well at least thats my way of thinking...... i will let you know how it wears but i can tell you it looks pretty cool now. Thanks and be well brother.

    I understand it's meant to be holstered, carried and shot. That's why I asked about the durability of the CCH. We often read posts on the board where someone has carried a pistol, then seems to be upset or surprised when wear patterns start to show up. We don't typically see CCH used on slide surfaces, so I'm just wondering how it will hold up compared to other common finishes. I think most finishes are developed with some durability expectations.

    At $100 a pop, it's not too expensive to have it done again. But on a $200-250 gun, that could turn into a pricey venture if it has to be redone every couple years. That of course is assuming it's not all that durable. Thanks for sharing the images.

    I hate to be blunt, but that CC on the LCP makes me think of the old expression "Lipstick on a pig."

    I hate to be blunt too, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I doubt and hope that the OP cares less what others think.

    If a turd was case colored and stamped Colt I'm sure that most around here would like it.
