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

Never done this before, so nothing to add. Except....

Post pics when you're done, please, and narrate what you did and your impressions.

Thanks, and good luck to you!

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.

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?

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?

I think you can send it back to glock and they can refinish the barrel in black.

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.

just hit it with sandpaper and you will get a mirror finish if you do it for a couple of hours.
