    From blue-collar to tuxedo in one fell swoop. Nice.

    I removed the blue finish with Birchwood Caseys blue and rust remover. Then I used 180 grit polishing wheels on a Dremel tool (this took 5 wheels). Then used a spotting sandblaster at 90 psi with aluminum oxide. I then used some DuraCoat gun finish on the chamber of the barrel and drop in the $100 gripsand there you have it.

    That looks great! Kinda makes it your own, doesn't it?
    I was planning on doing something similar with the P6/225 that i ordered, if the finish is worn too bad. I was thinking of going the electroless nickel route.

    EDIT: After having a decent nights sleep,I got to wondering.....
    So is your slide "in the white" steel now,or is it duracoated also?

    I'll be waiting to see if you add the nickel hammer,trigger,take down & saftey levers.
