    Did not do this one but have done many. No its not hard. Strip frame, blast frame about 30psi in blast cabinet, rub down a bunch with acetone to strip oils off, set up airbrushing equipment, mix your hardener with your Duracoat paint of choice, and spray! I usually do 2-3 coats. Clean the crap out of your airbrush gun, let paint cure for 3 weeks. Clean gun, put back together and wahlah! If you want a good finish, spend time doing your prep work.

    You make it sound so easy!! NOT!! I guess it would be cheaper to let someone else do it than invest in a blast cabinet, air brush equipment, air compressor, etc. But thanks for the "How to".

    If my dog was that UGLY I'd shave her azz and teach her to walk backwards! :eek:

    But of course you did start with a rather booring canvas...:D

    Kidding man, I'm not a Glock guy but it looks like you did a good job! ;)

    Tack

    As a Glock owner my question would be why? Is the Polymer frame not good enough in the stock form? What are the reasons for coating the frame?

    Okay. I can understand that. I thought the coating had some functional purpose. Even though I prefer the stock look of the Glock frame, to each his own.

    I hear ya. If we all liked the same thing we would all be driving a black car. Or shooting a 1911.

    Where did you get the stippling done on your grip? I would like to have my Glocks done.

    Did that myself. Not that hard, just time consuming
