    I stripped my Sig P226 frame down and degreased with a lot of CRC parts cleaner and let air dry then heated frame up and sprayed with Aluma-Hyde 2 semi gloss black and let sit in front of a heater over night and now she's going to hang in the basement for 2 weeks before I put her back together. I had the slide & barrel of this one done with a baked on finish from a gunsmith with Gun Kote black, he bead blasted both parts and parked them both and then did a baked on finish on the slide leaving the barrel parked. I also had night sights installed on this one.

    I will post finish pics when all back together but here's the frame that I sprayed 2 days ago with Aluma-Hyde 2

    I used this stuff before and if you fully degrease parts this stuff works great.

    Looks good so far. Show us some close-ups when you get it back together.

    Ouch!!

    I have found alumahide2 to be great on an AK. It took FOREVER to completely cure (like 2 months).

    It does look really good even though I prefer darker furniture.
