My new addition
My new G2S
After having issues with the factory paint coming off and rusting on my G2C, I tried other finishes, blued and repainted. I liked the blued look, but still had issues with rust. Unless I shell out a lot of cash, rattle can paint job didn't last long either. So I went with another less expensive option and that was Gunskins. Got to tell ya, application went pretty good with just a very few small blemishes, which can't be really seen unless you are real close. So now my pistol is rocking the GS Military OCP Black skin :D
Here's a few pics with each finish.
You might try sand blasting the slide and then spraying with a clear acrylic. Give it a few days to cure, it is a very hard finish. I used a satin clear acrylic over my camo paint jobs on my ARs and it has been doing a good job of protecting them. Flat Clear is just a frosted finish, but Satin Clear is a little flat and adds depth, while Gloss Clear is all shiny. With a sand, bead, or glass blasted finish, the acrylic will have plenty to hold on to and won't flake. Flaking is usually from a surface that has not been prepped correctly.
