    I think I'm going to send my 14 yr old Gen2 G19 slide to Smyrna to have new night sights installed as the the old ones are pretty much dead. While its there I was thinking about having them refinish the slide and barrel. My guestion is for those who may have done this recently. Will they refinish with the old Gen 2 phospher/parkerized finish or will it be one of the newer finishes?

    Lone wolf does finishing VERY reasonably that will be like the gen 2 finish. I would just order the sights and install them yourself or locally if they need the whole gun returned. Shipping isnt cheap with guns

    My understanding is that I could just ship the slide and barrel, then its technically not a gun as its the frame that is considered a gun.

    I recently had my glock 19 refinished by glock. They do not refinish at their facility in smyrna, it's not in house. They send their pistols/slides to be refinished somewhere else. It will be one of the newer finishes. It took me 10 weeks to get my pistol back. It came back with a charcoal/gray matte finish.

    edit: I sent my entire pistol to them via my lgs. The pistol was sent to smyrna and then they sent it somewhere else to get refinished. (I have no idea where or (company) that actually does the refinishing.)
