    Ok, so I have a few questions about polishing Glock and M&P internals.

    I get bored at work (I sit behind a desk for 8 hours, on the overnight), so generally surf the web. Usually end up watching stupid people doing stupid stuff on youtube. I came across a few vids on polishing the internals, using Flitz and either a dremmel or q-tip.

    Now, my questions...

    1, does polishing the internals actually make that much of a difference?

    2, should this be done only to a "range" weapon, or can it be done to a carry weapon?

    3, does it have to be Flitz? or can you use any non-corrosive polish, like never dull??

    Also, any reasons why this shouldn't be done, that isn't just a personal opinion, would be welcomed.

    I did watch the 20c trigger job youtube video for glock. And i did polish. Trigger pull became a little bit better. That's all i can say.

    Some have "over polished" with dangerous results.

    Any polishing removes metal, and if too much is removed, it is hard to put back.

    If you know what you are doing, and keep the correct angles, then you should be okay. Otherwise, I discourage it and suggest more dry and live fire.

    you can bet the prosecuting attourney has firearms experts taking zimmerman's gun apart. what do you think the DA would do if he found zimmerman had a diy polish job on his ccw gun?? "the defendent in his racist zealousness has honed his implement of anger to a fine edge making his own deadly enhancments in order to send that one round right through that poor child's heart!!"

    if you want a better ccw/sd trigger have a proffessional do it and retain the receipt for any proffessional work done

    I generally find stoning parts is all that is necessary. As Jon said liability is always an issue with any alterations to a carry gun.

    Well, I'm getting trigger work on both my Glock and M&P (by a professional), basically, just swapping parts.

    I was just curious really. I'm comfortable enough to swap out parts in the slide (striker and what not), and have only swapped out the slide lock and mag release. Not confortable taking the entire lower apart.

    Besides, my carry thus far has been my .357 mag.
