    Where is the best place I can get my 10-8 flat trigger coated in black, to match my DW Valor? I want a good finish that won't come off if the trigger rubs the frame a little. Would you have to sand down the shoe a few thousands for the treatment? Is there a good product I can use at home?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I have mine gunkoted. Did it myself w/ the aerosol version. It's starting to rub a few lines near the top and bottom.

    Where would you get the gunkote can? Has anyone ever delt with us anodizing? That looks nice!

    Thank You

    bought the can from Brownells.com.

    I was thinking about anodizing, but didn't really look at any local vendor.

    I would just gunkote and touch up as needed, anything you do will come off or show marks over time. Gunkote would be easy to fix when it got to you.

    The only thing I can think of for not showing wear would be Ionbond, but that's going to be expensive. I would just Gunkote it like others said. You can always respray it.

    Thanks guys i appreciate it. What if i sanded the sides of the shoe on each side a few thousands and then glass bead it and then gunkote it? Then I think the few wear marks that you get over time might not show. Mine always rubs a little on the frame on the lower left side of the shoe.

    So as to avoid another thread. Does anyone know if it would be possible to sand a flat trigger smooth like the Harrison Extreme ones?
