    Polishing

    Use Mothers mag cleaner and you will not believe how your stainless weapons turn out. Fantastic.

    I like the way the Glocks look polished, there's a user here "jsimion423" who's a jeweler and will polish them for about 30-40 bucks and does an awesome job, I've been told by some trust worthy folks here, that you trust him, I just haven't got a Glock to polish yet.

    I don't agree with HOSSFLY

    I think they look great -

    I've polished and bead blasted several stainless slides on different brands of guns.

    Bi-tone guns look the best to me.

    :cool:

    Lol this cracks me up! That "jsimion423" you speak of is me lol I'm just a Glock guy and know nothing about XD's or what there made of or how it's turned out if someone's done it already. I know that if you attemp to polish a NIX Glock you will severely mess it up. I have polished a few of the Glock slide for a few ppl on here.

    Here's the screenshot of the PM I got when I asked this question, This makes me look like a jackass, I didn't include the persons name who gave me that info because he probably just mixed up the user or something and I don't see the point in putting someone out there like that, I didn't notice the person posting, normally I just reply.

    Yea, the guy asked about polishing a glock slide & barrel and I told him to ask himself based on info I got from someone else and also I didn't notice the user asking, I just hit reply, but I just wanted to show I didn't make the advice up.

    In the end if your looking for longevity and strength, you cant go wrong with robar np3 as a coating. Beats chrome in toughness by far but is not that shiny so you wont go blind :) looks like polished stainless.
