    I picked up this polishing compound called flitz. www.flitz.com
    With the compound i polished all my internal metal to metal parts on my glock 23, polished the feedramp, and polished my barrel. My glock looks pretty cool now with my shiny silver colored barrel. I wish i had a cam so i could show pics of the results. I highly recommend polishing your metal parts. Racking my slide is much smoother and my trigger feels so much better.

    Polishing compound is almost "a must" for Glocks. I hit up my G23 with a Dremel and compound and polished all of the internals after droppin' in a 3.5 lb. connector. With a mirror polish and the new connector, I can actually hit something with the gun, and amazingly, I'm even considering buying another Glock to add to my collection.

    Yeah man, i also installed a ghost tactical connector for the trigger and it made a big difference in accuracy. What new glock are you looking to get??

    yeah, when i detail stripped my gun, there was so much black gunk in there. I usually detail clean my gun every two weeks, i dont think you have to do it that often, but im just anal like that.

    darko lets just say that glock factory barels are black. After using flitz on it, its like a stainless steel mirror. Thats how good flitz is at shining shit. i used the commercial polish you can get at grocery stores and it doesnt even compare to flitz. Simichrome is also a good product that you can find at motorcycle stores.

    I want a 1st or 2nd generation 17 to mount my Surefire P101 on and leave it bedside and move my G23 back to a carry gun. I also want a G36; IMHO, they are the best Glock on the market.
