    My question is if I remove the black finish on my Glock slide with the gun develope a rust problem? I saw a picture somewhere here where they removed the finish and I like the look. I think they used some type of compound like flitz or something similar. Any info would be appreciated especially from WalterGa if he reads this.

    There's that tennifer "finish" or whatever it is( i dont want to make a statement on that) beneath the black phosphate. So there shouldnt be any rusting. Am I right about that? Correct me if i'm wrong.

    That is what I am understanding that the black finish is separate from the tennifer I would like to try to remove the black from my 2nd Gen 19 as I like the look so I would like to try the flitz or simichrome on the slide but need more info before I do it. I also need to find simichrome or flitz.

    You can blast off the black top coat the tenifer wont't be affected. But from what I have seen lately the tenifer has micro-pores which can allow specs of rust to get on the slide. If you like the look of the slide polished I would clear coat it with Duracoat clear.

    Feel free to call me if you have any questions423-639-8924 visit me at www.ccr-refinishing.com
