Well, here's the latest from my Duracoating adventure. I'm very happy with the results, but i
must say, I'd be very reluctant to Duracoat or Cerakote a barrel. Folks say Glocks are made
loose, but whe...

I used Duracoat for the frame of my G20 and I couldn't be happier. Of course, it's very

release to come from the Glock Store. I have to say that the aluminum magazine butt plates are
the best. I...

That looks sweet. I'm doing my G20 with durakote on frame and barrel, Titanium Nitride on
slide. I found gold mag base plates and Glock sells a gold extended slide release.

I'd agree, except that Glocks are (intentionally?) made pretty loose. I think it would take a
