Hello all,

Is there a need to blast a Glock slide before coating with either Norrell's or Duracoat, or is it just standard degrease and spray? Thanks

No one has tried to coat a Glock slide?

I haven't tried it yet, but I believe that it is needed. I also think the age of (Generation) of Glock has somehing to do with it as well. I haven't gotten around to do my Glocks yet.

If it is an older Glock, you may not need to blast it. The newer Glocks have a surface treatment (teflon maybe?) which is pretty slick and Norrell's does not adhere to it very well. I blast mine with 90 grit aluminum oxide and have had great results. YMMV

Newbie here, but, have refinished a few firearms in my time.

Depending on the level of wear on your existing slide, you may need to have it sand blasted.

Or, for $60, send it back to Glock USA and they will do it for you and make it all original.

Duracoat and Durabake both work well on sand blasted Glock slides, for the record.

I used Norrells on my G21 slide - just degreased it. It's been a couple of months, approx 500 rounds and 2+ matches and so far so good. Make sure you hit the corners good, I was a little light on them and now wish I'd hit them a little harder. The rest looks fantastic.

Good luck.
