I have been a big fan of bead blasted finishes ever since it became apparent that S&W was not going to make very many blued guns that I wanted to own. The only downside to bead blast is that it WILL show small dings and scratches and the only way to fix it is to blast it again. I had a job years ago in a shop that had a nice blast cabinet setup with the perfect grit and all of my stainless guns got frosted. They look just like S&W factory bead blast. Be sure to use a fine grit. Unfortunately I do not have access to that blast cabinet any more and now all of my guns need a reblast. Most machine shops have blast cabinets and some of these guys will blast parts for you for a 12 pack of beer. Ask around. Gemini Custom does VERY good work.
