    I just bought a Gen 3 G27 and I used some car wax on the slide and it seems like it left it pretty smooth and much harder to leave fingerprints on.

    This has been done for many years on blued guns with great results, It keeps moisture away from the metal as well as keeps fingerprints to a minimum..
    Carnubba Wax is the best as it's 100% natural..

    Cool. I didn't even wait for the pop-up to get an idea what this thread was about. I just smiled and clicked.
    I just may have to try this. :supergrin:

    Just a little bit. Not real noticeable though. It looks pretty good.

    Try Renaissance Wax, it's used in museums on guns and is great on leather. Milt Sparks recommends it in small quantities.

    As a child in the late 50's/early 60's I had a little bald headed neighbor boy whose mom would wax and buff his head. She'd put a real gloss on that thing!

    Black paste shoe polish is great also. We used on the 1911's in Vietnam to try and slow the rusting problems. The was a pawn broker I worked for that used it on all blued guns to make them shine in the show case.

    Why would you even do that? It's a glock, just shoot it. Am I missing something here or what?

    I'd be very surprised if this was a first but probably a first in a long time. People don't cease to amaze me here. From simple green to the dish washer to the amount of lube threads we have. Next you see some guy driving through a car wash with the gun mounted on somewhere outside of his car to save time cleaning it. Then asking the girl standing on the street corner wearing the special clear heels if she could help him "lube his gun".

    Oh and by the way

    I have done it for years on any firearm I take into the hunting field,it works for me. This past spring two other friends and I did some pheasant hunting,we decided to do it old school and used old black powder shotguns,with black powder loadings. I used a NR Davis & sons , a beautiful hammered,twist barreled 12 ga. made in 1874. The last thing I did to it before it went into it's case for the trip was a coat of carnauba wax. That saturday morning it was misting and by the time we came out of the field it was lightly snowing. We went into the warming shed and started cleaning our shotguns,black powder produces heavy powder fouling and if left can cause corrosion . My shotgun had no corrosion on it,the fellow that used his 1883 hammerless had light orange freckles scattered across his tubes. A couple of squirts of Ballistol and a good wipe down took care of the freckles,no the worse for wear. He asked me how come a shotgun like my twisted iron barrels didn't have any rust on it. I told him a good coat of carnauba wax over the whole gun before it went into the case. Waxing my firearms has never hurt a thing.We each took three birds each. SJ 40
