Default Stainless Slide

As anyone polished a already stainless slide? If so how'd it turn out?

Default Polishing

Use Mothers mag cleaner and you will not believe how your stainless weapons turn out. Fantastic.

I like the way the Glocks look polished, there's a user here "jsimion423" who's a jeweler and will polish them for about 30-40 bucks and does an awesome job, I've been told by some trust worthy folks here, that you trust him, I just haven't got a Glock to polish yet.

I don't agree with HOSSFLY

I think they look great -

I've polished and bead blasted several stainless slides on different brands of guns.

Bi-tone guns look the best to me.

Lol this cracks me up! That "jsimion423" you speak of is me lol I'm just a Glock guy and know nothing about XD's or what there made of or how it's turned out if someone's done it already. I know that if you attemp to polish a NIX Glock you will severely mess it up. I have polished a few of the Glock slide for a few ppl on here.
