    Does anyone know if there is anywhere that can put a new parkerized coating on a Glock slide? Say if it was modified, maybe added some machining details and needed to have it back to the same finish.

    Parkerization should be available from most competent refinishers.

    You've piqued my curiosity though...pics?

    Parkerizing won't be anything like the original finish.
    I had a slide refinished in Cerakote and it is hard to tell the difference between it and my other stock Glock slide.

    Haven't done any mods yet as I was trying to find out if I can get it back to stock coating first. I will post pics when finished.

    Just had mine refinished with Cerakote after I had it milled. The Cerakote is less reflective and not as slipery as the OEM Glock finish,,, but it's hard to tell a difference by looking unless you get the light to reflect off of it at the right angle.

    Here's a before after in about the same lighting conditions.....

    Yep,,, Mark is the man that did mine. I sent him my slide, he had it milled, coated, and back to me in about 9 days from the day I mailed it to him.

    Great guy,,, top notch work, great prices,,, good communication,,, A+ experience IMO!!

    Mark milled the slide for the MRDS,,, and filled/blended the front sight hole flush,,,, so I just had the entire slide re-finished. It's actually a second slide,,, I still have the Ghost Sight slide as well. I can take a pic of them side by side if that'll help ya with your decision.?
