I've MEK and Acetone both in my shop.  I'll clean the parts myself before taking them "wherever".  Won't hurt to have them cleaned twice.  Oh, and I'll immerse the parts and soak them.......and then brush them before removing from the de-greaser.  That ought to do it.

 

Okay, all of that's out of the way, now to make the decision about "who" to take it to.  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  (ponder)

be sure to not handle the pieces after cleaning. When they are that "dry" they'll soak up oil from your skin everywhere you touch them.

Use nitrile gloves to handle the cleaned parts.

Cerakote recommends degreasing and then baking to draw out any oils in the pours of the metal, and then degreasing again.

Thanks for the "heads-up", Brandon.  I downloaded the Cerakote Training Manual yesterday because your point was a question I had.

Thanks, Jamie.  Sure are nice looking.  Customer service goes a long way with me.............and, as I've indicated, there was just "something" about Jared that didn't sit will with me.  Couldn't put my finger on it, but just "something".

Well...... I detail stripped my Hi-Power for the first time in 34 years!!!!  Don't jump on me, I've only shot about 350 rounds out of it in all that time so it wasn't that dirty.  It's all stripped and I soaked it in Acetone for 4 hours.................it's clean as a whistle.  I'm going to take it to Firearm Solutions on Monday.  Now, if I can just remember how to put the damned thing back together, I'll be okay!  :o

I feel bad for mentioning Harsh now.
I haven't dealt with him in a couple years, I guess he got too big for his britches.

No need feeling bad.  If he's gotten "too big for his britches", it's his fault.

Just got back from Firearm Solutions in Duncan, OK.  Want to thank Jamie.  Keith Stewart is a really "stand up" kind of guy.  Liked him.  Extremely accommodating.  Very knowledgeable about the product and bent over backwards to help me.  When he said he'd have to order one of the colors I'd chosen, I asked if there would be an extra charge and he just looked puzzled and said "no, why?????"  Told him about my talk with Harsh and he just rolled his eyes.  I forgot to tell him I wanted my Delrin checkered grips painted also and asked how much extra that would cost.  Keith: "Nothing!"

 

Did I mention I like this guy?  If my pistol turns out as nice as some of the examples he had there, I'll be using him any time in the future when I need a Cerakote job.

 

Thanks again to Jamie and all of you for your help and comments.   "Happy, happy, happy"!

Keith said it would take about a week to get it finished.  That was on Monday.  Sure feels as if a week has come and gone several times.   ( Did I mention patience isn't one of my biggest virtues?????) :sarcastichand:

Okay, Jamie..........and anyone else interested, here's a pic of the "new" old Belgium Browning Hi-Power.

The Stainless turned out a little darker than I expected, but I'm still pleased with it.  It's to be a daily carry and I reckon the less "flashy" the better.

Thanks, Matt.  Keith did a fine job and even sprayed the grips at no charge.   :o   He even reinstalled my front and rear sights since I didn't have a sight tool. (also at no charge) :good:   Stand up kind of guy and I'd recommend him to anyone who needs any of the services he offers. :clap:
