After trying a couple searches I cme to conclusion that nothing was very recent on this topic so I am wondering how some of the DIY finishes have held up. I am wondering what ya'll have used and how each has held up. I talked w/ Spingfield and was going to send mine back, but may opt to do it myself if I get a recomendation. I was specifically interested in the Brownells bake on finish in a can, but am certainly open to suggestions. Also can someone give me the link to removing all the parts (loaded chamber ind., slide stop, ect.) to do this, as i cant find that anymore. Thanks in advance and sorry for being long winded.
