Abstract: Semi-automatic handguns characterised by the classic Colt 1911 model rely on a reciprocating slide mechanism for loading and ejecting. The moving surfaces require a tight fit to maintain firing accuracy while having ease of movement to avoid misloading or jamming. The electrophoretic painting method is ideal for coating complex geometries where engineering tolerances need to be maintained. The anodically depositable paint system developed for this application incorporates nanosilica for reinforcement of the re…
