    I refinished the frame of my model 21 this weekend. I used Moly-Resin and cured it at 275 degrees for an hour. I also fine bead blasted (240 grit aluminum oxide) the frame before I refinished it. The fine grit gave the frame a very matte appearance. If anyone is interested I can attempt to post pics.

    Here is a pic of the G21 with a G19 for comparison. The slight blue tint to some of the parts on the G21 are a result of my attempt to mix a custom midnight blue color for a different project. It worked ok but I'll be refinishing the parts to match the frame. You should be able to see a difference in the frames. The G21 was blasted and refinished with Moly Resin flat black. The G19 is stock.

    The G21 also has MMC sights, Gun Kote matte stainless slide, Bar Sto barrel, grip stippling, 3.5 Ghost Rocket connector with polised internals, and a captive stainless recoil spring assembly. The G19 is stock except for the "Snake Skin" stippling on the grip.
