    my glocks are tools, too. i even like a bit of wear, it give carachter to the gun, but those single straight scratches aren't good looking in my opinion. if i have a simplex way to fix something i don't like i don't see Whats wrong with that. to be obsessed is definitely bad, i think it would be very annoying, but that's not my case :) and yes, that g19 shoots very good: perfect trigger for me, never a single malfunction in 4k reloads and pretty accurate up to 150 meters with the FAB defence stock i adapted for her ;)

    I use flitz on blued guns, and automobile chrome and stainless. Best stuff I've ever used on unpainted metal. I have a feeling the OP gun has a coating I.e. frying pan finish era.

    You are right: the coating is one of the l'attestato frying pan finish..the one wich is more towards "gray". my glock was produced in Austria in 2011-2012 if i remember right

    hi, i just used the polish paste! the cut is much less noticeable :)
    the only "problem" is that having polished the slide a bit, now there are spots where the surface is more polished, not higly polished, but you can definitely noticed it. do you know a way to darken/make less reflective those spots? thanks ;)

    You do not notice the path you have started down?

    You attempt to "fix" a scratch that should not be a concern. Now you are going to attempt to "fix" the next "problem". Then you will have to fix the next problem until......snowballing.......

    ...until you finally admit your "fixes" completely F'ed up the left side of your slide and you wind up having the entire slide re-finished!

    Good Luck

    i
    like i said many times above, i'm not so worried about the look of my guns but if there is a simple solution wich do not cost too much, i don't see why i should not attempt. however, i much prefer the slide now than before and spending money to refinishing a Glock is not in my plans. thank you anyway ;)

    Do the new Glocks have the CAT. Number on them now like yours? I haven't ever seen that or recall anyways.

    You could probably take it off with some oil and a wipe cloth.

    That looks like a GLock 19 9x21. I thought those were super rare and worth a boatload of money.

    Yeah it does say 9 x 21. I didn't notice that. That is a first for me to see.

    yes, i live in italy, our 9x21 is very similar to 9x19mm (used in italy only by police and armed forces). i shot several 9x19's and there is no difference in felt recoil or controllability

    Thank you for sharing that information. That is very interesting. Does the 9x21 have better ballistics than the 9x19?

    They use to make colored car polish/wax. If you could find some in black it would probably hide the scratch.
    Or you could just wait until you get a couple more scratches and that one wouldn't bother you anymore.

    Put another "cut" on the other side of the slide = racing stripes.
