    Was Thinking of sending my Commemorative Desert Storm Slide to Glock for a touch up, Some of the Black Parkerization has come off over time. Do you Think this will hert the value if I do This. And Will Thay Want to do updates as well on it?

    Glock actually farms the re-finish work out to another company. The new finish is shiny like the current Glocks. I would say that they would refinish the entire slide and probably affect the "collector" value.

    If the pistol has been fired or the finish is wearing off, the pistol effectively has no collector value.

    Whatever finish that Glock is specifying for the new pistols will be on any refinished Glock.

    I would think it would be hard to refinish that slide and not mess up the engraving.

    Then explain the high value of 1911s that are nearly 80 years old and have practically no finish left on them?

    Never been fired, Just has some small marks were the Black coating has rubbed off in spots, Maybe should just leave it. When I lightly oil it you can't tell.
    Thanks for all the info.

    I say leave it as is, unless you can be sure it will not affect the collectors value.

    Do you mean the marks made by the 'tupperware' box?

    If so yes, leave it alone!

    Such marks are normal.....I'll try to take a pic for ya.

    FOR SURE!

    If it's unfired, don't alter it, doing so would ruin it as far as collector value is concerned, to have it refinished would be a bad thing!
