    Uhh, that isn't stainless, is it?

    You can polish metal all day long; unless it is a high grade stainless, then it'll rust like hell. You know XD's, they rust when black, right? Wonder what you're up against with no coating?

    I would be happy just finding a Stainless slide for right now, but no big deal I like mine how it is.. I upgraded to a new Rod/Spring Combo and havent had a chance to shoot it yet..

    That Dons Guide Rod is perty and that 22# spring is hard to get in

    If he'll keep posting pics about every couple of days, then it shouldn't take long to find out.

    USMCsilver is 100% correct. If that isn't stainless, and it has no coating... Have fun with it. ;)

    Sure does look good though. I still (for some unknown to me reason) want to get one of those hard chromed CZ-52s. I don't own anything else flashy, they just look cool.

    No, the real question is -- Why would it be stainless? FWIW, there are few firearms out there that are made out of stainless steel and then coated. It just doesn't happen too often.

    Now, IMHO, my Stainless Colt 1911 would look good if I had it polished to that degree. It is true stainless. However, I would not go that far on it, because realistically, it'll look like shit after one trip to the range.

    The only way I'd go that far is if it were going to be framed and hung on the wall. Guns are for shootin', not to be used as a mirror to check your hair.

    im no pistol expert by any means, but ive worked with steels the last 8 years... the only reasonable material for a pistol upper would be some grade of Stainless, its probably not the best grade of SS but it should be some kinda SS. the average carbon steel coating to prevent rust should be atleast 40microns that its miles to thick for the tolerances on a pistol...

    but like someone said before... just handle it for a while and wait a day or two, and we shall find out soon enough

    And then you can go to the detailing area and learn to polish and wax it.
