Here is a pic of a custom EMP i found that Quack had posted in Glocktalk. It is a custom EMP from Cylinder & Slide in Nebraska. He said he thinks its Cerakote on frame. My question is, what finish(es) can SA custom shop do that will make it look like this, frame and slide? One more detail that may or may not matter, i think this is a 9mm which has aluminum frame, and i have .40 which has steel frame. Please please XDtalk, help me get my gun to look like this. p.s. i have emailed C&S, awaiting their reply

SACS will do black T as well, costs more, but they have it listed as a finish

I can tell you now that C&S is good but you will wait...I have some custom work paid and it has been six months since the payment. I call periodically and they told at least Dec. before I ship my gun. There is a six month back log...
:sad:

wow, im not interested in waiting that long. im pretty sure SA turnaround is 2-6 weeks with most being closer to two, unless you ionbond.


more great pictures. I definitely owe it to quack to go shoot it after i get it done. any chance your near KY?

Just talked to SA Custom Shop on the phone. Here is price list of what i want done.

Single Side Safety - $80
Front checkering - $150
Round Butt - $65
Crown Barrel - $35

not too bad...
two options to refinish

Refinish frame in black - $80
Refinish Hard Chrome under black - $385

Was told that Refinishing Slide black would only work with Ion Bond, others would fade/ not hold at all. So im looking at totals of $400 same colors, or $705 to have colors swapped. On top of this, round trip shipping is $45 for two day, or $60 for overnight both ways. Gonna sleep on it, but will probably go for $400 option, with the idea that if i keep this as my carry gun for a few years, I can always send it in later to get refinished. Thanks for you guys help, and Quack we can still try to meet up to go shooting.
