I have a ruger 22 stainless that being polished has a few scratches on the finish. I was thinking of glass beading it to get more of a matt finish.

Anyone done it before? how did it come out? any pix?

I had my 686 S&W done and loved the result. A flat grey appearance.

This pic is around 8 years after being done and about 5K rounds on the range.
