    My local gunsmith does very nice refinishing work and I used his services more then once over the years. I dropped my Sig P226 9mm off to him today (Slide & barrel) to get the slide refinished in a baked on black finish and the barrel bead blasted and polished. For the slide he said he bead blasts the slide then will parkerize as a primer then apply the baked on finish.

    Here's my LoneWolf slide and stock G22 barrel he bead blasted for me in Dec:wavey:

    from the pictures that slide looks like the bead blasting is not even,

    in person does it not look this way ?

    and yes the proper procedure for putting on a "paint" or bake on finish is to park the metal first, then apply the duracoat, ceracoat etc.. to the freshly parked surfacve

    It's bead blasted stainless and he made it look smooth as glass with a dull finish just like I wanted.

    Listed it as sold because I only had tire kickers and low ballers. I just kept her rather then almost give her away.
