ok after hours of rubbing and going from 400/600/800/1000 grit sandpapers and A LOT of stroking.....

i polished the slide on my p94 including the extractor and the end of the cross pin, i must say for just some sand paper and a little water, all came out pretty well..... i'll final polish it with some 1200 and then a polish wheel and some compound, well......

tell me what you think.....!

i keep my guns with a light wipe of an oil rag, once it gets polished fully, i might just wax it and check it weekly, as it will be my CCW.....

check the automotive section of your local walmart and you'll find sandpaper up to 2200 grit.
cool will do this afternoon when i get off of work...

I dig it. It's so cool to be able to see your reflection in your firearm.
yeah, and i always have to be different, i like the looks i get at the range, esp with my 10/22, now it is just something else to get offers on....

you ought to see peoples faces when they are all shooting their pistols, and i walk in open my case, and assemble my 870 12ga, and blast one off, every one stops looks around the dividers, and wonders...." What the hell is he shooting over there.....? "

and of course i double tap the last two rounds faster than most of them can with their pistols, and i ALWAYS get the "i aint breaking into your house line...."

They both came out amazing. The 94 looks sharp. Did you do the 1911 as well or was it already like that?

the 1911 was as a reference..... it is satin polished, not quite mirror like

Ah, I see what you're saying now. I saw that matte finish on it as well and assumed the satin was higher polished.

do you have any problems over time maintaining the finish or dis-coloration problems polishing the carbon steel and leaving it "in the white"?

i haven't in the week or so it's been polished.... i might have misread somewhere that the slide is stainless, that is why the slide is black painted and not blued.....

if so, it should be good to go for a while and just re-polish it when the normal scratches from use pop up.

i used mothers all metal polish and seems to be doing well, only time will give a definite answer.


The P89-P94 frames are made from hard coated A356T6 aluminum alloy, the slides from 400-series stainless-steel, or chromemoly in blued models. P95 and P97 frames are made from polymer much like that of a Glock. Slides are made from high strength steel or from stainless steel as an option. Grips on pre-P95 models are made from polymer, and are built into the frame on the P95 and P97. The sights are dovetailed for a quick draw, and are marked with white dots for fast target acquisition.

Ruger P944, KP944 and KP944D pistols in .40 S&W caliber feature hard-coated A356T aircraft-quality aluminum alloy frames with proprietary Terhune Anticorro stainless steel slides or chrome-molybdenum steel slides on blued models
