    Hi Dave, No I did not. Iíve had 2-3 polishing ďprojectsĒ going on for a few years, but have never gotten to the MK. I did complete a now gone K9. No Flitz or Mothers was used. Sanding, filing, stoning and a buffing wheel was used. Iíve still got pics of the K9 and will attach them to this response. Good luck if you tackle that project. Just be ready for it to take a lot of hours, a lot of sandpaper and a lot of buffing compound. I generally start out very rough on stainless (#250 grit) and work my way to #1500 grit, also using the files or stones to get rid of any metal cast marks, chatter marks, metal boogers, etc. Then itís to the buffer for black compound, then green. Sometimes youíll have to go back a step to your more rough stuff. Anyways, hope that explains it and helps. Iíd invite any more questions you may have once you get into it. Happy polishing!!!

    eek. I'm not too sure that I'm ready for some of that aggressive kind of polishing.

    How much less did your k9 weigh after the fluff?

    I guess I'll be content just putting another coat of Shinola on my boots for now.

    Thanks tho!

    Man, I donít blame you. Everytime I think about getting back onto one of my projects, my knuckles hurt as if I already worked on one!

    Why do I think that is the exact process Kahr Co uses on the elites? Did you mention that? Can't recall where it came from.

    I think those guys have muuuuuuch better equipment and processes than myself. The K9 must have taken 60-80 hours. Theyíd be some mighty expensive guns, or be using less than cheap labor, if they were as slow as me. : )

    Finally got one pic that would upload. A slide from one of the ongoing projects, a Springfield compact 1911.

    Wow!
    A corrupt government tends to be well protected by a thin white line of bureaucracy.

    If you decide to part with any of your grips, I'm looking for a pair. Beautiful pistol.
