    I put an extended safety and a Cylinder & Slide hammer and sear in my LW. The poor pistol was painted at some point in it's life. They didn't do a very good job of it. I stripped the slide, removed the paint and reblued it myself. It turned out great IMO. Now I need the aluminum frame to look as nice. What would you experts recommend I do with the frame?

    Nice work on the slide. If I were you I’d browse the Brownell’s catalog for aluminum refinishing products. Maybe Cerakote or something similar.

    Also, I was able to figure out that LW means Light Weight, but RA has always meant Regular Army to me. Sometimes it means Rhodesian Army. Is that a Rhodesian High Power?

    RA firearms is the company that imported these pistols.

    Can you provide a link? I never heard of them, and an internet search turned up nothing.

    I made a huge mistake. It's not RA Firearms. It's R Guns.
