    Does any one know some one or a company that is local in cincy/nky That can bead blast a gun for me to bring back the matte finish! I'm sick of sending it out and paying a arm and a leg to have something done local if I could! It's a kimber ss target II and the guy that had it before me rub the kimber side of the gun(left) and started making it shinny! Rest of the gun is still factory matte ! Please help

    No he did not carry it and only shot it ones he said and the wear was on only one side and locked like over cleaning! Gunsmith said same thing! There would be marks on other side too if holster wear

    Thats a real shame. The reason I asked is that its normal for there to be more wear on one saide than the other. It sucks that someone had to screw up a nice pistol.:crying:

    Yeah I'm just glad I was told about this gunsmith! He is a lic kimber armor and he is taking the full gun apart and replacing everything inside and redoing the full gun and finish and giving me a new barrel for $200
