Polish or Powder Coat?

I've got a classic hopper left power feed Mag. Should I polish the body or have it all Powder Coated? It's gonna be my work horse/ go to mech.

polish THEN powder coat...





Do it with translucent colors and you get a finish that looks like anno, that is hard as a rock, and will go on stainless steel.

I'm not normally too impressed by gun porn, but that bronze-colored Micro is fantastic. I'd probably have different grips and a different bottomline arrangement, but the color and finish are outstanding! Very nice. You say that's polished then translucent powder coat?

Yup. Ken at KPCS does my work for me. He wields a mean static-gun.

You've got a point my vampiric friend. I'm not a wall hanger kinda guy and I plan on this being my "go-to" mech.

Or TV series like mine.
