    Could it be possible to polish off the black from my p226, and make it two tone? What do I need to do it?

    "For those of you that would like a little different look to your MP. I picked this up off of the Sig forum site and have tried it on most of my Sig barrels.

    Instead of polishing the barrel, just soak it in white viniger. For our MP's about 30 min does it. Then just take your fingers and rub the black off. Then run it under cold water for about 2min, dry, apply a small amount of oil, wipe off and then apply Fitz or another brand of metal polish. Rub to whatever degree of shine you want then apply more oil, wipe off and there you have it."

    Here's an example done on the M&P's barrel ect.

    I might consider doing this to a Sig with its stainless slide. I would not however try it with a 1911s regular old steel slide, im not saying the one in the picture isnt stainless. But when you take that black oxide finish off, the gun becomes much more prone to rusting.

    According to what everybody has said on doing this/how to ect..The coating (at least as was talked about with Glocks/Sig/M&P ect.) is just the coloring. It has nothing to do witht he actual melonite treatment ect which is bonded w/ the metal so to speak.. some coloring may help prevent scuffs/scratches, but it doesn't make it any more prone to rusting.

    Carbonitriding like tenifer does give corrosion resistance but the coloring you see is parkerizing and is generally considered a good finish for holding oil on the surface. I don't know how much corrosion resistance the carbonitriding is good for on its own, but its probably important to understand the finish people are scrubbing off probably does offer more than just coloration. Personally I'm keeping my guns as well protected as possible including a coat of oil over a parkerized tenifer finish, ymmv.

    this is tempting for my M&P

    The M&P is a stainless slide, so there should be no rusting, i would think

    stainless shouldn't rust :ugh:

    of course, the level of corrosion resistance does make a difference. if anything makes stainless rust, its from outside factors like cleaning agents

    No... what's worse is on normal steel the melonite acts to help against corrosion..the same isn't true for stainless.
