That looks fantastic. I've always been a fan of silver slides. I may have to look in to this. There's another guy, can't remember his screen name, that brushed off the black finish on his barrel. The result is a finely polished silver barrel and a black slide. I like it.

Please post results as to how yours stands up to shooting, cleaning, etc.

Looks pretty good. It will be interesting to see how the paint will hold up to gun cleaners though.

That was either 1inthechamber or Rimfirehunter, I forget which, but I think it was 1;]That looks fantastic. I've always been a fan of silver slides. I may have to look in to this.

I actually used fine grit sandpaper to 'polish' the barrel and slide.

Nice work Max. :)

I do like that two tone look. I may try something like that. I wonder if I could get a nickel finished paint then laquer it?

Does gun kote make a color lke that? It would take some prep but the finish would be pretty much bullet proof
