    Oh, it's been done many times. Many people do the polymer frame as well.

    Google search "duracoat glock" and you'll find some photo's.

    Duracoat gets many rave reviews and I've considered it on a couple of my guns.

    I don't see a problem with it wearing any differently on a Glock as any other firearm.

    I'd say Go for it! Make it unique!

    You can send it too Glock and they will re do the black powder coat for like 40 bucks. The Tenifer is IN the metal. The Black is just window dressing. I would send it to Glock. Unless you just wanna different look/color.

    The problem is that he is attending a tactcal emt class in May and he will need it for that..I am afraid that if I send it to Glock it wont be back in time...if I duracoat it...will I have to completely disassemble the slide???

    I wouldn't do anything to it until after his tactical medic class...

    I don't like guns that look brand new anyway. I like a little hard earned character showing on my pistols.

    I agree wai until the course is up...He's gonna be rolling around banging it up anyhow. I am not much for custom on working guns though I would send it to Glock but Golden Loki looks good.

    The slide isn't difficult to take down on a Glock. A small drift punch to pull the plastic piece back that holds the back plate on will enable you to take the back plate off. Once that is off a few taps on the back and everything falls out. The removal of the sights would be the hardest part.

    There are many videos on the net that will help you disassemble the slide.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I just DuraCoated a pistol, and the prep is all important.

    I used acetone the first time to degrease the slide and the DuraCoat peeled off. Striped it off, degreased it thoroughly with denatured alcohol, scuffed with 600 grit, and resprayed. Seemed to take hold then. DuraCoat says to degrease once before any scuffing and blow/wipe off after that--no more degreasing! I guess they know what they're talking about. I had no problem with the frame.

    The actual spraying is easy, the prep is the work. I disassembled the slide on my CZ-82, but you can easily blue tape over anything you don't want sprayed (slide rails, breech face, etc.). DC goes on thin, so put extra coats on heavy wear areas (slide front, rear, etc.).

    Why? Tenifer is far tougher than just about anything else out there....
