    I know ... It may just look run of the mill, but I'm proud of it .....
    It started life as a bone stock Gen. 1 Glock 23. Fresh out of the
    used handguns case at my local gunshop for $359.00 .....
    After 9 hours of labor ... this is what it has become....

    Looks good but I would try to run over the slide with 2000 grit and then give it to someone with a good buffing wheel that knows what they are doing and it will look flat out amazing!

    I'm not a glock fan, but that looks great.

    CRF, Thank you,

    I had considered the buffing wheel approach, but I was actually after this look, (180grit) too keep the glare down ... I'm still considering Glass-beading the slide
    with a fine Garnet media.....But then, I'd have to be careful as I don't want to remove finish from the charging grips on the slide.. I like them black to add a little contrast to it.... I don't think I'd be happy with the sandblasted finish tho ...
    I'm kinda goin' for the not too bright but not too dull look .... Thanks for your Idea though ... I may just try your suggestion to see what it looks like .... and If i'm not happy with it, I'll just blast it.



    AWD, Thank you.

    Take the slide to a machine shop and have em put a Jeweled finish on it, that'd look sharp..
