    Glock slide refinishing

    Hello

    This is actually my first post, and I am about to purchase a Glock 17 9mm, my first handgun. I love this gun but would like to make the slide look like titanium/silver (will smiths gun in bb2). I am quite ignorant of refinishing, and was wondering if glock would refinsih it for me or do it myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Welcome aboard!

    Unless you are quite familiar with refinishing, it's probably best to let a pro handle it. I like Robar (www.robarguns.com), but there are many good finishing shops out there.

    Hard chrome will be more holster wear resistant. There are several good Hard chromers like

    Robar did my Glock. I had them NP3 it. That stuff is indestructible. Holster ware is the last of my worries now.
