He IS closing for good. Spoke with him about it and found out why. His story to tell, however. Sorry to see him go. Not a whole lot of hi-power gunsmiths out there.

Polishing slide rails, also prepping gun for refinish

What is the best or easiest way to polish slide rails? Also what is the best way to prep the surface for using an at-home spray-and-bake finish?
