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:
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?
