    Just got my barrel polished finally. Came out exactly like I wanted it to. And I polished the feed ramp to a nice glossy smooth finish. Figured I would share it with some people that would actually appreciate it.

    But I do have a question, has anyone ever used the ghost forward bullet slide release? I'm thinking about getting one if it's worth it.

    I had a local shop polish and bead blast the barrel for 25$. Can't beat the price.

    Anyone heard of that ghost forward bullet slide release?
     
  7. No, but its not a release. Its slide stop. Not meant to return the slide to battery.

    I did my own polishing. 600 grit, 2000 grit, Mothers polish, and a Dremel polishing kit ($12 from Walmart). Oh, and about 6 hours!
    What you can's see is the trigger job I did on the internal parts. She looks and shoots like a dream now!

    Great question about bullet forward slide stop...unfortunately no one has answered. I too have wondered if its good. I am new to glocks, have a gen 3 19, does barrel polishing make the barrel shiny silver?

    Yes. If you want your barrel done pm nuckingfuts29
     
  17. Properly done it makes the slide a mirror. I am happy to provide the service if you choose to go through with it. See my sig!

    Yet its the same bullet. Only cheaper becuase of the zombie gimmick which is fine with me lol

    @iGlock:

    Just curious, do you use a MIC holster with that clipdraw?

    @Parkeral:

    Nice one there. Are you planning to have it polished to a further shine?
