    After watch 100s of commercials about non stick frying pans. Watching them use electric mixers in the pan to scramble eggs. No scratches no wear marks. Why aren't we using their finishes on our pistols. We could clean them in the dishwasher.

    After thinking about this I am about to spray all of mine with Flex Seal.

    I thought that's what Glock used on their older guns . . . . "frying pan finish" . . .

    "Glock Perfection - dishwasher safe . . . "

    Remember to use a rinse aid to eliminate unsightly water spots.

    I "jokingly" asked my wife one day after a range trip ...if she was going to clean the Wilson Combat 1911 she shot today.... / ...she said sure, what cycle should I use in the Dishwasher... :jawdrop:....

    I said, that's ok honey, I will take care of it ..../ my word, I thought she was trying to give me a heart attack ....:(

    It's funny you say that. I have an Ops Can that had a nasty habit of binding to it's brake mount as it cooled. I tried Break Free, FP10, and even a little bit of high temp anti-sieze, but nothing worked. Someone else with a can with a similar type of mount recommended spraying the brake with Pam, and it worked surprisingly well. Plus, there's a wonderful buttery smell as I shoot.
