Sometimes, yes, slides get slightly marred when taking off and putting on new sights. Its not as if you can do the deed with plastic or foam covered tools! LOL

However, it should NOT leave huge gashes or really awful long and deep marks. Yes....THAT is unacceptable.

But a few small markings.....man...I would not sweat it as long as the sights are on right. Its a Glock....a tool to be carried and used...not a prized nickel plated Colt safe queen for once a year range trips.

A few small marks will not be noticed after a while and I doubt your slide will rust. I have two older Glocks and both have almost no finish left on the slides and neither have a speck of rust.

Have you posted this over on ArizonaShooting.com? You might get better results raising a local issue on a local board.

It is hard to believe that Glockmeister would use a punch to install sights. That would be the only way I think the dents would have happened. I always make sure if I need night sights installed I make sure that the GS I use has a sight pusher for that gun. I have seen people use a punch and you could not even tell it, and I have also seen the heck beat out of them putting them on with a punch. It is kinda hit or miss!!!, No pun intended!!! Good luck!

Maybe the owner, Ben Paz, is still in prison and COULDN'T see the OP to take care of the problem.

I've installed a lot of night sights on Glocks, using the MGW Glock rear sight tool. Never marred a slide yet. Since the pusher never touches the slide, hard to understand how the phosphate finish was damaged.

If the original post is genuine, then not only was the "armorer" incompetent, but their attitude towards customers stinks. Since I found out about Ben's criminal activities, I've not done business with Glockmeister.

While I understand your desire to have a pristine looking firearm, consider this. It is a tool, not a safe queen for show. Scratches just give it character. Don't worry about the little stuff, and shoot the poop out of it, and use it like a tool. Expect it to have wear and tear and worry more about function, not finish.

Have to agree with USMCBill. I can understand being a bit miffed with the so-called "customer service" though. Bad business, but let's keep this in perspective: It's only a glock, and the slide is still protected even though the finish is a bit damaged.

Sorry you were treated like dirt, though.

still a bogus thread though.
From what empirical evidence do you draw that conclusion? :cool:

FWIW, I know that my Glocks are just tools, just like my beautifully-blued Gold Cups are just tools. I don't want either unnecessarily marred. I don't believe the OP needs any psychological counseling, just a competent person on whom he can depend to do work on his Glock. :rolleyes:

Does this seem the least bit similar to that thread several months ago about the guide rod that was "shot out" of a new XD or XDm? :confused:

According to James who installed the sights for me, he used the Glock front and rear sight tools.

BS!!! BS!!!!

Pictures?

I have searched the internet to find out who was the owner of GM. And Ben Paz popped up. So I called them and requested to talk to Ben, they hanged up on me after stated, "there is no such a person." From your post, it makes some sense to me now why they are like that.

It's how I was treated by them made me unhappy, not really all about the damage they had done to my slide.

Thank you for your support! :)
