My 40th Birthday Build

So I need some advice for my 5th build for my 40th birthday present to myself. So far I have done 2 45ACP's 1 9mm and 1 38 Super. I'm not a gunsmith so I do everything by hand. I'm going to up my game this time and go Longslide 10mm. This will be my first non-stainless build. I usually use Nowlin barrels and would not like to deviate but they don't carry 6 inch bull barrels, neither does Wilson. Fusion does carry them but I don't know who really makes the barrel and the quality. I'm looking for advice on other manufacturers.

For bluing, since it is my first go-around. I think Im going to use EPI's Ultra-Blak 400 for the frame and slide and parts. Thoughts?

Try Briley, Kart or Bar-Sto. Bar-Sto has 10mm, non-ramped 6" for $295.
You may know a thing and it is not true. But in understanding that thing there can be ONLY truth. And to understand, you will need contrast. NOT adherence to a single idea. The truth is in the contrast.
