You did a great job-
Personal taste - I hate "Billboards" & lettering on guns & try to hide what i can:(

I do it to a lot of my customer's guns and even my own. I think it makes the guns look really sharp. Here are some pics of ones I've done.

Paint and Polish

Wow!
These all look great. Seems that many are dong the polishing to the barrels as well. Youtube is full of examples.

Some use vinegar, while others use blue remover, still others use sandpaper (that really doesn't sound like a good idea) to take off the barrel blueing. Question. Will removing the blueing from the barrel using the methods mentioned, somehow damage the coatings on the barrel to the extent of damaging, or making the barrel less effective?

Reason being, I am planning to remove the blueing and polishing the pins, extractor, release, and barrel on my glocks.

Also, how does Glock look upon this if covered service is needed? Will Glock refuse to cover the gun because of the modifications?

What do u use to do it? I am using a paint marker and thinking I may have to do another layer I have been having a hard time keeping the paint in the grooves.

I'm not sure what glock would think, I believe may void warranty of u do the barrel or extractor. I bought a chrome extractor from lwd for like 20
Bucks I think. And I would watch polishing the pins they may slide out a little easier. Polishing the barrel does not affect it from what I hear, I thought about it but I just bought the chrome threaded barrel.
