    i would either send it back to glock or to walter birdsong. his black t finish is the best that i have seen on any gun. well worth the $$$ and his prices are not high. several guys in the office have had their guns done.

    Matte finished hard chrome for a two tone stainless look. That is what I always said I would do if I got ahold of a Glock that had a very worn finish. Haven't come across one yet though. You can get it done for a reasonable price. Google will help you.

    Hold up: Glock's finish is an acid-etch (park of some variety) over Tennifer. The Tennifer isn't gone, unless you have a major gouge in the steel. You can actually take a wire-wheel to the slide, take all the park off, and have a nice silvery surface that is still nitrided.

    However, for "factory look" you can do a semi-gloss Lauer/Gun/Dura coat, or Brownells Teflon Moly over the current finish, with just a thorough degreasing. You will need a new firing pin channel liner (about $2, and easy to pull & replace yourself) if you do a bake finish.

    Krylon or Rustoleum aren't good choices for gun finishes. They may be removed (and come off as a paste) by penetrating lubes, nor do they survive heat and wear as well as the epoxy finishes. Yes, lots of folks do it; I've done quite a bit of my own finishing, and don't recommend it.

    Duracoat! It goes right over the GLOCK parkerizing with simple degreasing. I just did 3 GLOCKs and they turned out wonderfully. You don't need to bake it, but if you choose not to, you'll have to wait 10 days or so.

    Personally, I like the 'worn' look too.

    Yeah, but we can't take your advice- you've admitted to Duracoating everything but the cat! (Fun hobby, isn't it!)
