Re: Pictures Of Your Daily Carry

This is one that I’ve always wanted. Been carrying it a lot and I have to say that I love it. I had a PPQ that was a fantastic handgun, one that I shot better than any other. I could not get used to carrying it with its wonderful trigger. It gave me the Heeebie-jeebies. With the P99 I have the same basic feel but can carry it in double action. I put the excellent Trijicon HD’s on it and I am loving it.

(Oh and I love the way it looks too.)

Re: Pictures Of Your Daily Carry

Sooo; just to update anyone interested in the depth and effectiveness of glocks anti corrosion treatment; I have just “tested” it a bit with my “equinox” g27.

I went to Destin Florida with the family, wow, what a beautiful beach. Three days on the beach. Glock went with in the beach bag all days. When possible it was on my person. I got a pretty bad burn and that made me sweat even more than usual. My Glock was COVERED in sweaty salty funk the entire vacation.

Now this is not obviously scientific but I will say that my sweat is particularly offensive to ferrous metals. I rusted up a new lc9 in one day, that was after I had oiled it.

The Glock withstood all of this without a speck of corrosion. If there had been any unprotected “bare” carbon steel the one two punch of my sweat and the gulf’s salinity would have sunk their teeth into it.

I don’t know just how much sanding one could do to a Glock to compromise the treatment but it obviously is more that it takes to simply remove the black coating.

Mod away,
Surfer

I've got an old 34 that we sandblasted the black off. The sights will rust long before the slide ever will.
That’s good to hear!

Sooo I had developed some odd asymmetrical ware on my old g27. Well; of all my pistols this one is one which I will always have and I don’t mind “customizing” it a bit. I gave it a bit of a rub on the slide. Not too deep so that it removed the carborizing, don’t want rust issues and I like the muted shine. I LOVE sig’s equinox finish.

It’s mine and I like it. I know I’m a dork. Don’t be judgie.

Would not dare judge, but I have a question. Glock has a pretty good finish that stands up good against rust, etc... My question is when you shined it up did it remove that finish and if so what if anything do you plan to replace it with?
I had long heard about how the nitro carborizing process permeates the steel to a certain depth and that shallow surface modification shouldn’t compromise the corrosion resistance of a treated slide. I was skeptical but noticed that the “high spots” of my slide which were already somewhat shiny from holster wear never showed any corrosion no matter the amount of my highly corrosive sweat. So I figured...why not.

Since my mod I have had the Glock covered in sweat and it seems to resist corrosion as well as ever. If there are any changes I will be sure to post a cautionary tale here.

I like that! What did you use? Just fine steel wool or something else?
I actually just taped it off here and there and hit it with some progressively finer grit sand paper with light pressure.

Been into my glock lately. It's a Georgia marked gen3 27, I put a glock minus connector in it and the break is smooth as silk. I put some big dot 24-7 sights on it and I LOVE them; very fast sight picture.

Re: Pictures Of Your Daily Carry

It shot well, but had an issue with chewing up brass and that was consequently clogging the pin channel. Trip back to prescott. Its fine now and the Ruger team is great to deal with. I love its size and build quality. Very accurate for such a small gun. Great to have a 9 always with me, no matter dress or situation.
