Default Smoothing Gov. 45 rail

Does anyone know of a GREAT gunsmith shop that can smooth the rail/action slide of my Colt 45 Gold Cup, in order to give it the feel similar to a Kimber? I want it to be less sharp to grab. Has anyone had this done? I know I am jumping on the band wagon, but I plan on keeping this gun, and I am not too concerned about altering it to my likes.

Bronco73,
All that is required to achieve this is a simple slide to frame tightening, and minor action work, this will remove your side to side play and up and down movement, thus smoothing up the action and aiding in accuracy enhansment.

I did not make this clear. The action on my weapon is fine. I am interested in having the corners of the actual slide "shaved" down or trimmed. I want the corners rounded down so the gun has a "smoother" appearance/feel to it.
