avalanchecustoms said:IT was just done recently. I put the slide back on the gun to take photos. I am currently testing the effectiveness of the stainless steel to see if it will rust. I have not put anyoil on the slide as of yet and have had my greesy hands all over it along with a night in the trunk of the car. So it will have a little moisture on it just trying to see if it will get surface rust and what it will take to get it. Stainless is pretty resilient to rust but can and will rust eventually unless taken care of.
