Not a dumb question, im not sure exactly how it's done either. I had a guy in Maryland do it for me. I know there's some light hand sanding done then machine polishing followed by hand polishing. Takes quite a few hours to do.

Did you do this yourself? If not where did you get it done?

I don't care for polish jobs on guns. That's just more cleaning stuff to buy (mothers, never dull).
Plus if you are ever in a situation ware you don't need to be seen and the light hits its like shooting off flares. And it just doesn't look right. But that's just me. I don't like flashy guns.

I totally agree Tupperware handguns are ment for function not too bling out so to speak. I love my 40 Cal sub- compact and the my new XDS 45 acp single stack. My 40 was a bit too thick for ccw for me in summer because of printing issues. Winter time I stick with my 1911 made by Magnum Research commander model this weapon I paid 745 including tax. I was unsure about the Magnum Reaserch company since they primarily make weapons that are for show, but anyhow I took a chance took the weapon too the range.What a dream to shoot! Has all the bells and whistles without the price. The only thing I have done to it was changed out the guide rod spring to a 20 lb Wolff spring for hotter rounds. Anyway sorry about the rant and change of subject. Buy the way the only thing I don't like is the Desert eagle rolled out on the slide kind of annoying looking. This one was made in Israel the craftsman ship is impeccable. Goes to show you don't have to spend 1500 + dollars for a quality 1911 thank you. I love the forum.

I have an extended threaded barrel and ameriglo night sights on mine. The wow factor is when people see the tiny groups it shoots.

I sent the slide and barrel to a guy in Maryland who polished it for me. He does an excellent job, you'll find his thread on xd talk forums http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/xd-m-discussion-room-xd-m/201745-another-polished-gun.html you can send him a pm or if you want send me a pm and i'll give you his email address.
