I have a gen 1 G17. This was my first gun that I bought from a buddy of mine that is a LEO. I have checked the serial number and it was made in April 1987. This gun was his service pistol for a while. The gun shoots great and has never failed to fire or eject. The reason that I want to get it refinished is because when the LEO owned the gun he had the gun knocked out of his hand and had to kick it away across the pavment to prevent the suspect from getting to it. Therefore the slide has scraches on the right side of the gun. ( The gun still had not rusted in any spot even though I always bring it on the boat with me ) I would like to get the slide refinished in a matt silver color. If anyone knows any good places to send the gun or in the Daytona Beach or Tampa area to get this finish done I would be really greatfull. Also if anyone could recomend what type of finish would be this color and derable as well.
