Well I have been looking at this thread for a while so I figured I would give it a try, I have a Glock slide in the oven as I type this baking, it looks AMAZING right now.. we will see how it looks after 2 hours.. lol I'm sure it will come out great. This is a 3rd gen Glock 17 that had been carried a whole lot when I got it (I suspect it was a police trade in because the internals and barrel were like new) so I had it as my truck gun.. but it was looking pretty beat up. I roughed it up a bit with steel wool but it was already rather rough, then I cleaned it up with soap and water after a dunk in degreaser. Cant wait to see how it comes out.. come on and hurry up 2 hours lol. I will post pics when it is done.
