Change Black to stainless finish?
I just bought my Springfield XDm 9mm two days ago and I shot it today for the 1st time.
It is a great gun - I don't think I really understood just how good they are.
I not sure I'm going to do this, but mine is all black and I like the 2 tone better.
At the time I bought my gun it was on sale and they didn't have it in two tone at any price.
It seems that I seen posts of people getting their slides redone from black to stainless for a reasonable price.
I just can't remember where.
Any body know??
Thanks for the help.
DON'T DO IT!
Your slide is Melonited, it's more resilient and more durable than a stainless finish. It has about the same hardness if not more than hard chrome IIRC.
To get a Melonite finish applied it costs about $200. To have your slide bead blasted, it's about $90.00
Thanks for your reply.
I may or may not do it.
Heck I haven't found a place to get it done yet.
I just really like the two tone look - not enought to ruin a gun, but I do like it two toned.
Just looking for a company to talk to about it.
I had such a hard time finding my Kahr PM9 with night sights that I had to settle for the two tone. I sure wanted the all black, just appeals to me more.
