Just recently purchased this Glock 19 and it had a small amount of holster wear on the exposed area of the barrel. Decided to shine it up a bit. Turned out awesome I think.

Looks good man. My friend did two of his that way. I'm still on the fence about letting him do mine though. Just cause I can never change it back

I think you can send the barrel back to glock and they can refinish it with the black. I'm not 100% sure but I think you can. I did my 27 barrel, pins, and slide release and love it

Jkurtz,

That looks awesome! I assume the letters are done with white nail polish. I saw another thread about the lettering.

Is your entire barrel polished? Can you provide some instruction on how you did that and what tools and chemicals you used? I like it.

Thanks...

Certainly! I used a fine #0000 steel wool using just a dab at a time of Flitz and Simichrome polishing paste, alternating between the two. I believe Flitz by itself would work just fine though. Go slow and wipe to see results as you go. It took about 15 minutes per side. I did all three sides of the flat surfaces of the barrel. I may do the entire barrel later.

That's interesting, can you post a pic of the barrel out of the slide?

Where can I buy Flitz polishing paste and 0000 steel wool. I hope it's not a stupid question but I'd like to polish the barrel and white out the lettering on my G30.

I think it will look nice. It's a small gun so all the details will really be visible.

Wouldn't removing the finish make it less durable? Even if it's stainless it will eventually start to deteriorate. Or is the tennifer in the steel itself?
