Well guys I decided to do some work on my MP40 and started with the slide. Pretty much got the look I was going for so far. I did slip a couple of times so there are two little mistakes I need to work on and the serated portion could use some work still but for now its looking pretty good I think. Next up is to do some stippling once I an get a look I like.



I just buffed up the areas I didnt want to be shiny so that thye are still a dull grey color. The rest of the portions are done up to a 2000grit shine. Looks pretty nice.



DISCLAIMER: I jsut got PRK eye surgery two days ago so my vision is still kind of messed up so if the pics are a little offI apologize but it was about the best I can do right now.

I could but I liked the portions of dull black that kind of offset the polished portions. I think it kind of looks cool like that. Also I think that the top portion being dull may help make it a little less glaring to shoot. If it doesnt then maybe itll get the full treatment.
