I've wanted to do this with my 23 since they didn't have a 23C when I bought mine through Glocks For Heros. How much does something like this cost? I imagine it has to be pretty expensive.

Talking Awesome!

Nice...!

I already have the same TFO sights... Instead of polishing components, I plan to eventually send my slide and barrel off to UTC Coatings for their "Fail Zero" nickel-boron finish...should ease the clean up process...but have some work to do to it before that happens...

I am working with local shops now to see if any of them have a laser engraver that is beefy enough to cut through the Tenifer treatment to the factory Glock slide steel...

Figured if I was gonna have Magnaport cut some holes in the slide, and make it personal with some engraving, that I should get all that work done before sealing everything with UTC...

Be a couple months before everything is finished on my piece, but you can believe plenty of pics will be making their way onto the forum once it is complete...

Look up Zipgraver. They have Glock engraving page.

I read an article in a past issue of Combat handguns about Magna Port. They seem to be the leader in the industry as far as porting for hand guns. Lead time is 7-10 days. The two port job I had done cost $150.00

Fail Zero...I'm gonna have to check that out. That could be huge for cleaning the barrel.

Magna Port is in Michigan by the way. If anyone is considering it call and ask what day they are running the line...so to speak. I remember Ken saying they did it
one day a week. This could shave off some days from your lead time.

Default Fail Zero...

Here is the site for Fail Zero:

http://failzero.com/

I can't wait to get my pieces treated... Easier cleanup AND no need for lubrication in the upper part of the weapon... Score!

UTC is the company that actually handles the nickel-boron coating, but Fail Zero is a brand name for it...

I believe the cost was around $200 for both slide and barrel to be treated.

They would not eleborate why, but they do not treat firing pins or other internals to the slide...

They were willing to coat the ejector along with the slide and barrel for free if someone requested it...

The reviews (even on this forum) have been nothing but good...

I will look there again, but last time I glanced on their page it seemed like their engraving work looks more like etching - it does not appear to go very deep...

The Tenifer treatment Glock had done to their slide steel is about 0.05mm thick, done in a 500° C Nitride bath, andhas a 64 Rockwell C rating…

It takes a beefy laser to actually cut something that hardened...
