Dan Burwell has done just about everything to these guns.

I'm ready to have mine blasted. The two tone is growing on me, especially after catching up on Jack Bauer.

Dan has done some awesome stuff to M&P Slides.



Ask him for samples.

Only thing to be careful of is if you plan to shoot USPSA production, it is not an allowed mod from what I have read.

Regards,


Blasted would be 100% legal. I've shot Level 3 matches and seen guys with aftermarket finishes on Production guns. I've never seen anyone get DQ'd for it as it's not really a competitive advantage. But yes it is illegal for Production.

I will not be polishing the M&P slides. I'll leave that to anyone that has the time on their hands, and trust me it will take time. The slides are pretty rough and a good bit has to be taken off just to get the machine marks and such off. The one on the right is the closest thing I will do to polishing one:





Good luck.

Is it possible to use a matte finish on the flats of the slide instead of polishing them (left gun)?? I love the look, but how much upkeep is necessary to keep that shine on the polished portion of the slide?
