Hey All-



I am planning on media blasting the slide of my M&P 9. The only question I have is which blasting media should I use: walnut, glass, or aluminum oxide?



Also, does the vinegar trick work to remove the black finish from the slide or do you end up with a better looking stainless finish through media blasting?



Thanks for your help.

I use alox, but be very careful on setting the pressure, take it slow.

What pressure setting did you use? I thought I would start low around 60psi, but I also thought about trying baking soda to see how well that works vs. the more aggressive alox.



Thanks for the info.

I use a mix of glass bead and alox. I like the look of the glass bead but need the cutting of the alox to get the black all off.
