I've been interested in using this product but before jumping head long into refinishing a Sig I thought I'd get the process down while doing some smaller projects like this.
Like many others I don't like the way the mag base protrudes forward of the front strap of the grip on the P225.
A little time at the grinder and sanding wheel and that was taken care of.
The grip screws off my P239 & 228 which I carry often were showing wear & some light rust.
A good sanding to remove the rust and I degreased them as instructed and they were ready.
I cut a piece of sheet metal to make some oven safe holders for the screws and the mag bases so they wouldn't touch the oven rack.
I picked up a barely used Toaster oven for $5 at a Junk-tique store and with the wifes External Digital Thermo. I was ready.
The DuraBake was applied twice all by the numbers and came out great.
I'm anxious to see how well it wears as I buy new grip screws every other year as sweat from carring appendix style in summer has them rusting in no time.
A $5 toaster oven and $25 for the DuraBake ( enought to do 2 long guns or 4 pistols ) and I'm into it for only $30.
I have a Junk SA .22mag pistol thats up next.
