Thank you for contacting me savage run. It came out looking excellent on your gun, I'm glad you're happy with the finished product.

Guys, if any of you all are interested please feel free to contact me. I'm not a company, so I don't have a bunch of parts thus my turnaround time is usually just working on it for about 2 days. I guarantee for you to be happy with my work or send it back, and I will correct any issue that you are unhappy with. I feel my prices are very reasonable as well. Please pm me and I'll get it through my email if you are interested. Any bi tone gun can have the same polished finish as you have seen in the pics. I have also done a few older stainless 6 shooters that I wish I had pics of but don't unfortunately. Any stainless gun or part I can do.

Another recent customers barrel. This one wasn't meant to be super shiny. The gun was still very tight and so he wanted the barrel to be polished to loosen it up a bit which it did.

That looks fantastic! Makes me wish I'd bought the bi tone instead of flat black. I wouldn't want to shoot it too often because my fingers would smudge that baby.

Have you considered using Renaissance Wax to protect the finish? With repeated applications, the wax works down into the pores of the metal.

The British museum uses it to protect their ancient armor and swords from rust. I have successfully used it on a two-handed Broadsword I received as a gift. Not a speck of rust on it.

You do beautiful work.

Thank you for your compliment

Honestly, if it's a stainless steel slide, most of the time it wouldn't be around enough moisture to cause any rust issues plus stainless steel will rust, but not nearly as easily as a standard steel. Most people keep their guns very clean, especially if they went through the cost and trouble of having it polished. Wax is typically slick (maybe not the kind you are speaking of), which would obviously cause an issue with operating the gun.

If it's the barrel, I would think/hope that most people keep them oiled well enough that rust wouldn't be an issue anyway and it gets so hot it would likely melt any sort of wax away.

In fairness though... I know nothing about this particular wax either, and it might stand up to everything better.

Ok guys, I have a deal going on right now with my polishing. Prices are as follows... (you pay shipping to me) so all prices include return shipping through USPS. I DO NOT use FedEx or UPS, as they tend to beat their boxes up quite a bit. If you really want to use one or the other, you will pay the added cost to ship if there is one.

All slides must be bi-tone! If you choose to get your barrel done at the same time, the price is much cheaper.

5.5" 55.00. Barrel 15.00 extra. 70.00 shipped back to you. Turn around time will be apporximately 1-1.5 weeks.

3.8 and 4" 60.00 (barrel included)

3.0" 50.00 (barrel included)

All of my work I guarantee you to be happy with or send it back and i'll correct it free of charge.

Note: I do not do polish the top, front, nor back of the slide for reflection purposes causing potential issues.

If interested, please PM me, as I am not on the site very frequently. I will get it through my email.
