    Cool got bored and refinished my ultra carry... what yall think

    Bead blasted the black finish off the aluminum frame, left controls black also blasted the slide and sprayed matte black duracoat. Also did a bead blast in the barrel to match the frame. Sights are a bit beat up but just ordered a set of night sight for it. Sorry no before pics but it's one on my everyday carry guns it was pretty beat up!

    How nervous were you the very first time you tried something like that?

    Looks good I refinished a Sig P6 like that a few years ago
    Most important thing about refinishing is the initial prep cleaning/degreasing/stripping prior to applying the finish,Most people just finish the exterior since that is where most wear and tear occurs and the only place most people see the cosmetics

    Looks good. You may want to spray a bake on matte clear finish on your frame if you didn't do so. Without the protective coating it may start to discolor.

    Love it. I would never have the courage (or skill) to try that. At least not on my gun... I'll give a shot on any of your all's, though.
