This week I'm going to polish my g19 barrel ... I will use a vinegar soak for a few hours and make sure my bore is plugged so it doesn't get affected. Then I'll wash it with soap and water followed by a soft 414 felt dremel wheel with flits polish added to it. Final step will be a cleaning of barrel and bore.... Anyone have anything to add that I should do... I've never done it before and I don't wanna screw it up

I used mothers mag wheel polish on mine and it turned out great. I was a little worried about using the vinegar on mine. Didn't wanna use anything with acid in it. I used a dremel with polishing wheel and spent a lot of time by polishing by hand. I did everything you are doing now.

Ya it does look good so u didn't use vinegar just the mag wheel polish with a dremel....? Any scratches or marks?
Nope no scratches. I will take some better pics and post them soon. I used a polishing wheel. I know that the glock barrels are not blued but I used a blue remover on it first and it helped remove the black.

So you polished the whole barrel by hand? What brand blue remover did you use?

@CBK342:

You may want to post those pics the the "Painted Letter Thread" here: http://www.glockforum.com/forum/f16/painted-letter-thread-lets-see-them-837/

That way, they will be among other Members' pics of painted letters. (That is, if you haven't posted 'em there yet)

Some of them have used Chrome paint instead of silver, and some have used a white paint base coat. Looks awesome.

I bought a 7 year old G30 and the barrel is showing tons of wear. Is there a way to take back to black or is polishing it the only option?

Both with a dremel and by hand. Can't remember the name of the blue remover. I got it at a local academy. It didn't help much with the black but it was a lot better then trying to remove it all with a dremel or some people use sand paper but it scratches it. I'll find out the name of the blue remover and let ya know.
