    Does anyone have any experience with this, specifically will the baking process affect the sights?

    Thanks

    It may melt the stock sights.

    To Gun Kote, you would need to remove the sights before sandblasting anyhow. Yes, I think baking at 300 degrees for an hour or so will damage the stock sights, the spacer sleeve in the striker channel, etc. All plastic would have to be removed.

    I think the heat may affect the heatreatment as well. As I Gunkoted a customers Glock slide and he sent back to Glock because it had a crack and they said that rebluing was OK but not to bake them. I don't know as I never saw the slide and I only know what he told me.
