    I want to get my glocks barrel, slide stop and magazine release either chromed(or nickle?) plated or polished. Does one without against corrosion, chipping & scratching more then the other?



    Which night sights between these 3,
    Meprolight Low Profile
    Trijicon HD
    Trijicon Novak

    For day time usage, & carry. Read the novaks are good against not snagging on stuff but dont know if they are the best for shooting in day time? And do you suggest getting orange/yellow + green or just all green sights?

    CCR has their CPII (electroless nickel boron) finish on sale right now, $69 per slide. I have it on 3 of my guns and recommend it.

    As for the sights, I'm a fan of Mepros but all of those will work well.

    thanks, im going to go with them for the barrel plating. And Possibly slide stop / magazine release, just dont know if the stop/release would look good plated or keep black =\.

    Question, the glock im ordering is a gen4 and above the magazine release i see theres a gap above the button, is there any kind of aftermarket release that you know of that would fit flush?

    i dont even care about having night sights i just really want 3 dots, and something that doesnt snag, guess the night time glowing will be a bonus.
