    Vinegar soak does work, some also prefer the polish method with dremels or elbow grease... Either way it is a time consuming process but the finished results are very nice

    Honest question.... any reason you are looking to do this or is it purely for aesthetics?

    Why would it be a joke? People like to customize their guns to meet their style and Glocks are no different, Glocks are already notorious for being considered "ugly" but with some attention by polishing the barrel, pins, slide lock and actual slide people can make them more their style... Different strokes for different folks, some prefer the plain look and others like to customize which is totally fine either way, there is no right or wrong though because either way it's still a Glock and performs flawlessly :)
     
  9. I just polished the barrel of my Advantage Arms Kit. Used a Dremel and the rouge that comes from Dremel. Came out looking great and slick as glass.
     
  10. Because "Polish the barrel of your gun" is used as a euphemism. Need I go further?

    I hear ya man. Many people like to personalize their guns. I spruce up all my guns, from my AR-15 to my Glock 22's. I really like the job you did on the barrel. Say you used a dremel with felt tip and Mother's polish, (or, Flits)? Good idea man!

    Don't do it! It's not custom, or even cool. It's just gross. Glocks weren't meant to have polished barrels! For the love of God!

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
     
  15. For you it's "just gross". To each his own man. I think they look great!

    I like my barrel polished, as for my Glocks, I like them polished as well. The hint of a polished barrel sticking out around all that black beauty is like looking at a sexy woman in a bikini. Gets me excited just thinking about it.
    So go ahead and polish that barrel(s) and then let us know how you feel :D
     
  18. Send it to ebay seller GLOCKPOLISHING on ebay. We do hundreds of barrels a year
     
  19. Check out the slides that have been completed. ebay item number:290679461763
