    I really like the look of the polished slide on the bi-tone models. Is it a bad idea to have these slides refinished?

    Do you know anyone who could do this at a decent price? Would the etched text stay there?

    I can't see any reason that slide cannot be hard chromed or some similar finish. There should be someone here who has experience with a plating shop that can help you out.

    You're talking about taking the coating off, right.

    If so, I thought it could just be polished off.

    You want it to look like this ?

    Threetango,
    That looks sharp, can you polish the finish off and have it look like or do I need to buy a new slide?
