    I recently had some custom refinishing work done on my glock.. The barrel is polished to a mirror finish. Anyone have any experience as to whether the normal function of firing the weapon will scratch the barrel?

    If it scratched the original finish off, chances are that it will scratch the new finish, too, unless the barrel was just polished down to the Tenifer treated carbon steel.

    Seal it inside a glassed box and put it up on your wall

    It will be fine. I polished my g29's barrel last year and I've put hundreds and hundreds of rounds down it with no problem.

    If the guy messed up your barrel, have him/her buy you a new one or have it done by a pro at their expense!

    ??? Is the rest of the gun done the same way?
