My super carry pro is nekkid

Well I went and removed most all of the Kim Pro II from my Super Carry Pro-there are not many postings on anyone who has done this.
I started with 220 grit wet or dry sand paper and progressively moved up to 600 grit for the finis.
When all the coating was removed to my eyes I then polished with Mother Metal Polish.
I have some pictures with the outcome-it looks really good to me but I may be a little bias.

Not bad, I kinda like it. I'm sure it looks better in person.

I like it, looks great, would look "factory" to the unknowing. Of course I'm a big sucker for shiny pistols.

Great thing about stainless slides can polish them or media blast them for a satin. If you do up to 1200 on slide flats, could get a mirror finish.

Thought I was crazy polishing my SS Raptor Pro... Never would have considered removing a finish. At least not till it got shabby. I wanted a polished flat which pros donít have. Had to bead blast and polish it up to 2000 grit.

Nice job.

I'm a big fan of the SCP and think it looks great, the grips you have make it pop.

That is a handsome piece. Now I sort of want to strip the frame on my SCC...
