    Finally polished my barrel....get your mind out of the gutter

    So I had some time to kill in the heat of the afternoon today. 97 degrees outside. 82 inside. Spent a couple hours giving the SR40C some bling.

    Looks good. I like it. May do the same to my SR9c. Reflecting light is the least of my worrys.

    But...You polished the outside!
    You're supposed to polish the inside—the feed ramp and the chamber.

    I did those too. That was the easy part.

    Looks nice. It gives the gun much more contrast. How does your SR9 run?

    I followed the steps in this vid.....



    When he says that he spent about 20 minutes with the sandpaper, I call BS. I spent an hour and it could still be better. I did the feed ramp as well, but that was easy.

    Thanks a lot Gregski and the video was really a big help. I built a old black powder 45 cal pistol kit one time and didn't like the blueing on the barrel at all and I used 1500 to to 2000 wet sandpaper on it then buffed it out using my dremel its as shiny as can be.
