    I just picked up a gen 2 G17 that looks new. The only thing i have noticed is the finish is gray and dull. It has NO holster wear. I think it just sat in a box somewhere. Will a little oil bring back the lustre? Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I took her home and gave her a good bath. The oil did a great job of bringing it back to life but it does still have a slight dull grey hue to it. not nearly as bad but acceptable. What a shooter...:embarassed:
