Bought a g17 for really cheap functions and everything works fine but there is some dents in the slide like a hammer was taken to it was wondering if there's some place that could grind it out and reapply the nickel boron or if there's a home remedy for it thanks

holy cow.....whatever did that was tough and had a fairly tight edge. The pattern makes it look almost like it was hit by a truck while sitting on diamond plate lol.

What makes it interesting it the finish seems unaffected, though it appears like it has been painted since that happened. I'm curious, how much did you pay for the gun? Did they give any indication as to what happened? I probably would not have given them a dime over $250, and i may even be stuck at $200 because that definitely needs to be replaced, not repaired.

Looks like the edge of a hammer face hit it. Some folks do hammer the side of the slide. It's a trick to tighten the slide-to-frame fit. Google it and you'll see or buy "making Glocks Rock" it's explained in there too.

However they say to "lightly tap" the side of the slide...that looks like someone was a bit over zealous!

Was it a stock NiB coating from the factory? It is interesting how it looks like the coating is in the grooves (as pointed out by nukin already). Did they coat it after the grooves were made? I guess we are more interested in how the grooves were made more than the fact the OP asked about the coatings...

As said earlier, I would replace the slide.
