    Ok so I have some time on my hands while I'm sitting here doing my midterm for my online class so I'm going to polish my barrel. I have it sitting in vinegar as I type. So far it has been in there for about two hours. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

    Let me get this straight, you have some time on your hands so you're going to polish your barrel? My advice, get a prostitute. Lol Jk. I couldn't resist.

    Thanks! I'll put some pics up when it's all done. I don't feel like spending too long on the polishing so I bought a dremel. I get back from Walmart and it doesn't work! Ahhh ***. So I'll just let it sit real long in the vinegar and pick back up when I get that returned. The midterms are gettin in the way of my glock lol. Thanks

    I have a few touch ups to do but this is just about done. It is crazy time consuming! But it's worth it. I love how it came out.

    I saw a few videos on the computer where guys were using that stuff to do it. I didn't have any and don't know where to get it but I used some turtle wax chrome and metal polish. Worked pretty good.

    A buddy did this on the aluminum cylinder head cover of his car, looked really sharp!

    And I have done the "poor man's trigger job" (and have recommended it) for revolvers. It works. It's a bit of work, but it works, and it doesn't take a gunsmith to do it!
