    Changing te slide color on my Glock 17

    Greetings,

    I want to have the slide color on my Glock changed to match the color that Glock has manufactured in limited runs. It's sort of a matte silver color. Anyone had that done aftermarket at a local gun shop? Is it simply a change in duracoat color... trying to get an idea of cost range to have that done. I think that contrast in finish is pretty slick.

    Thanks,

    I hear durakote works well considering how cheap it is. Look into carakote also it's the same deal but it's baked on and I hear it lasts longer.

    It has to be an epoxy paint like Dura-coat or some other brands. It has to be cleaned with an acetone so there is no trace of oil and the paint will stick better

    I am with you, but I do enjoy seeing what others do to their Glocks. I look forward to seeing pictures.
