    I'm looking to polish my Glock 17, gen 4 barrel. From the receiving ramp to the crown, I want to polish it all and do it right. However, inc also looking to do it cheap and easy. Any ideas or recommendations?

  7. I did mine myself, but if you don't have a dremel and everything then you can't be his price.

    Nukinfuts29 is the way to go. Does a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. Did mine and it looks great.

  9. thanks guys!!

    I don't polish them with the dremel, don't feel tools are the right way to go. My services are done by hand, so you REALLY can't beat my prices :D
     
  10. I did most of mine by hand also, just finished it up with the dremel to shine it up a bit more and it seemed to really help for me. But if I would've joined this forum before I did my mine I probably would have just sent it to you:)
     
  11. My very last step is the dremel. Low speed with a felt wheel, helps tie it all together.
     
  12. Agreed. That's what I did also.

    So, I just polished my barrel. I like it, but it doesn't have that mirror shine like some of the pics on here. I soaked in vinegar for a little over 8 hrs, and then I used mothers polish, with a scotch brite pad. It looks good, just not shiny! ANY ADVISE???

    Thats why it isnt shiney. Its going to be a bit harder now. You need a soft polishing cloth and the polish and a lot of rubbing.

    I watched a video, and that process worked wells. So use the mothers, micro fiber towel, and rub rub rub???

    P.s. You can see the dull finish a little better in this pic.
