CaneCorsoZeus: @GunznPoker Alright cool that's definately encouraging. I'm new to
sanding/polishing metal and was really worried I was gonna over do it and
ruin the gun. I have heard what you were saying that rinsing it in water or
soap water every once in a while when sanding makes it come out nicer, i'll
def. do that. And good looking out on the responses man I really appreciate
it! I'm about to get this started tonight.
GunznPoker: @CaneCorsoZeus Thanks bro. Is your xd blued or stainless? I didn't use a
great deal of oil but I did make sure it was a enough to keep the barrel
coated the whole time. I used 1000 and 2000 grit sandpaper... just be sure
it has a good coat and start spinning the barrel with the sandpaper. Any
questions let me know, I'm glad to help.
Eric Lopez: @MrGhostface213 Part 2: You should do a total breakdown of the slide for
cleaning every 1-2thousand rounds(based on my individual experience) There
is a lot of burr that builds up after so long, so removing all that
crap(dirty greasy carbon build up and burr-shaved metal) I looked up to see
if there's a vid and there was. Only part it doesn't show is where you take
out the extractor and pin, but that parts easy-self explanatory.
CaneCorsoZeus: my bad I just saw that you said 1000 to 2000 sand paper, another question
though, when you started out did it look like you were scratching the crap
out of the finish? and from there it gets better?
CaneCorsoZeus: Hey man good vid. I'm really worried that this is going to scratch the hell
out of my springfield xd barrel. did you use a lot of oil with the sand
paper? and does it look scratchy when you start out then start to even out?
thanks for any help I appreciate it.
Jonathan Morgan: I have the same gun I think ima leave it alone tho don't want it to shine
in the moonlight lol
GunznPoker: @tylormurphy Yes sir, I agree 100%! I did that a few days after I finished
up. Just nvr did a vid on it.
famasdan: @GunznPoker ya know guns are a great boredom killer, and something else i
think they should be qualified as works of art lol Thanks man ill sub you
GunznPoker: @famasdan lol, I'm sure they came out good. Yeah, I've been thinking about
going another round or just pulling out the dremel for a quick, haven't
decided yet. I also just checked out your channel, nice. I subbed!
jared brown: Hey, i cant get my trigger mechanism retaining pen out. any advice?
Travizzle Mycrt: What grid sandpaper???
Jonathan Morgan: U need to use a high speed buffer with a bias ply wheel to get a mirror
shine with a red block of polishing compound
Eric Lopez: @MrGhosstface213 Part 1: What kind of "jams" are you getting, ie; Failure
to feed, failure to extract, or what? Please specify to narrow the
problem... Also a good total brake down of the slide and cleaning will do
wonders..At first, when i originally got the gu, i used to have all sorts
of jams when the gun was breaking in at first.... then after a
few(3-4thousand) rounds i decided to totally break down the slide and clean
the striker components, the extractor and pin. Now, it runs so smooth.
GunznPoker: @GunNut12680 Thanks bro! You should, I bet when you do you'll fall in love
with it all over again, that's what it did for me. I might do some work on
the slide too...lol.
GunznPoker: @FireArmsResQ Thanks bro. It's hard to really see it in this vid but I'm
going to try to post a vid or two this weekend. Should be able to get a
better shot then.
DA4190: hey man i have a sigma 40 and i wanted to polish the slides what things do
i need to do so?
famasdan: why is the only thing i ask.
GunznPoker: @CaneCorsoZeus Hey bro, no problem. We have to start somewhere, I'm happy
to help. Post a vid of your XD once you finish up. I'm thinking about
polishing my new Taurus as well.
GunznPoker: @CaneCorsoZeus yeah man, it looked bad the first 10 mins, I thought I was
destroying the barrel so I stopped. After i stooped I washed it off in warm
soupy water and I could see how it was coming a long so I got back to it.
Don't sweat it bro, it'll look good. You just have to commit. Let me know
if I can help in anyway.
capo di tutti capi: I'd like to c it with a better camera not a 1mega pixel camera
djalkaline1: Bro give up the sand paper get yourself some mothers mag and aluminum
polish its in a small white tub. cut up some tshirts and polish the dhit
out of it itll shine like mirror. chaek out my channel im uploding a vid of
it in a couple days. Peace
CaneCorsoZeus: @GunznPoker Thanks for the quick reply man, much appreciated. I'm actually
thinking about sanding and polishing my all stainless taurus pt92 (beretta
92 copy), I saw a video on here called taurus pt92 polished and it looks
incredible but the dude just won't reply to any questions, pretty crapty,
but i'm worried the sand paper will mess it up, you think so? if not what
sand paper you think I should use? I already got flitz polish and really
wanna get started, thanks again for the help.
Deweyduhamel: Nice job ! I just posted a video on mine , I did the slide as well . I
think they look a hundred times better .
tylormurphy: i would hit the feed ramp off too wit polish
famasdan: @GunznPoker I was just wondering why, i do the same kinda stuff i actually
just color filled my guns lol... i just thought maybe it was to smooth
action if your barrel had defect or something was just curious.. did make
it shiny though. Not bad. id say go ahead at it again see if you can polish
it up mor eif it wont cause rust.
funa mota: Why do they suck mine jams a lot .peace of junks I change the magazine
spring that did the trick for now I'm using low grain but will it work with
high grain let us know what type of ammo you use on your s
DA4190: @GunznPoker Hey man i have the sigma 40 and i wanted to polish the slides
and maybe the barrel what are the things i need to do so can u please let
me know i really want my gun to shine thanks
choppa gunna: now thats nice
GunznPoker: @famasdan Just because I wanted to make a visual change to it. There isn't
a tactical or operational reason behind, only cosmetic. I take it you don't
agree w/ my choice?
FireArmsResQ: Looks good man. I wanna pick up another barrel for my G17 I've seen people
with polished barrels on their Glocks and I love the contrast.
