    So I called mom enquiring about the possibility of getting an unpainted slide. I was told "sorry we do not ship slides, you'll need to send your gun to us". I explained there was nothing wrong with my current slide, I simply wanted to blue a slide but did not want to sand my slide to do so. I also mentioned that I was willing to pay for the slide but was once again told "sorry we do not ship slides, is there anything else I can help you with."
    Very disappointing call. Has anyone here ever tried to buy parts from mom with any success?

    Call their number first and they have a recording that gives you a daily coupon code for $5 off shipping, it is only good for 1 day and there is a new code each day.

    Mom does sell slides, but not all 3 plants do the same thing. The 45 plant, whom I have only dealt with is very generous, and will sell me a slide, or give me a sear, but will not sell or give me a frame.

    I've heard that the 9mm plant will not send replacement worn sears.

    I did say "blue" but that was before I did some research, I am wanting to customize a slide. Thinking on hydro dip or paint but Esther way the paint would have to be stripped down, that's why I wanted an unpainted slide from mom. I guess now there will be no getting away from sanding .....

    My JHP slide just arrived in Lima yesterday for replacement. In my case, they only wanted the slide, not the whole gun. So at least in my case they'll be shipping a slide.

    For the record, they're powder coated, not painted. Quite durable and unless you absolutely must start with a silver base, there's really no need to strip them.
