    So I was bored today and decided to take on a little task on one of my guns. I was going to doit to my Glock but decided to doit to my Taurus, just incase I did not like the outcome.

    It looked like this at the beginning.

    How do you like that mag spacer in the last pic? Does it fit and work well?
     
  4. not too bad. Looks like there are a few spots that need a bit more love, but it looks good.

    I love it, it gives my pinky a place to grave on. Fits and works well, only down part about it is it does make a difference when trying to conceal. That 1 inch makes a big difference.

    I was going to use chemicals and elbow grease to doit, instead I decided to try sandpaper on it and polishing wheel.

    Question; don't you have to worry about rust when you remove the outer finish(not Glock)?
     
  14. No. Every company these days treats the metal with a tenifer process or a process similar that protects the metal. The coating is not simply painted on. So polishing the surface does not in any way compromise the anti corrosive properties.

    Yeah 5000 grit doesn't come out bad at all. It just pretty much just removed the blueing.

    Thank you.
     
  19. anything over 1000 isn't BAD per-say, but I have yet to find one done with sandpaper where I couldn't tell when I got it in my hands. I'm dedicated to the old school because it just produces a better finish. Not to say this way is wrong or even bad, it just isn't the same and my standards are extremely high.

    Theres no doubt in my mind I'm the only professional doing it this way these days. I try not to do the hourly breakdown of my cost in my head, that would be a depressing figure.
