We had our glock slides done in Houston. I can't totally remember the name of the company, it began with an "M" and ended with "ske" or something like that. It was almost 15 years ago and they still look good.

If you just want a shiny slide, you could just take the slide and spend some time on a buffing wheel.
I've seen it done with glocks and it really looks cool, especially with some tru glo style sights.
I have never actually shot one of these home-polished bricks, so I'm not sure if sun glare would be an issue when aiming

Glare! Damn I never thought of that...definately a point to consider. I really like the look of stainless slides (see pic) but yeah...glare might well be a problem.

Since we have a sh*tload of it down here after all.

I am not sure about the rest of you but a stainless steel pistol is more of a Hollywood gun then anything else at least in my opinon. I for one would not carry one. But that is me and my 2 cents. To each his own. But they are nice looking.

Yeah - aesthetically they do look pretty nice...the 'wow, bling' aspect appeals in that sense. But as for walking onto the range with one...hmm! Think I'll end up with black when that far-off day actually arrives


I'd just never thought of the glare thing before.
