    Good luck with this...something like this is exactly what I would like to get...then send it to James for a once-over. As much as I would like a Chantilly fat trigger, II date code P7M8 I can't see putting the money into something like that. But everyone is different, which is great!

    Here is a M8 I bought about 20 years ago. The right side was so pitted it wasn't funny. The top stained. It looked like the gun laid in a pool of liquid. The left side was pristine. It went to Fords for a chrome job. He could not recommend polishing it because he could not cover all the pits, so it came back satin.
    Can't upload for some reason.
    Plenty of HKs
    and other toys too.

    I once bought a used M8 that had some pitting and sent it off for some fancy pants re-finish. The slide came back so slick from that particular finish that I literally could NOT grip the slide to rack it. The gun was useless at that point and I sold it. Lesson learned. From now on, even if a gun is ugly and worn, as long as it's original and functions properly, it's a far better gun than a pretty one that doesn't work. No more gun refinishing for me! YMMV.

    Finally got the opportunity to go pick it up this weekend! The pitting wasn’t as bad as the pictures made it look. Brought it home and cleaned it up a bit. Everything internally looked great. Ran it out to the range today for first shots. I’m blown away by how amazing this baby is to shoot. All I can say now is I get it. I’m going to keep it as is and not mess with a good thing. I’m only into it for $800 so there’s no sense dumping any more money into what is clearly a shooter. Thanks for the info everyone, I appreciate it!

    Eezox, not Hoppes, to remove surface rust. Eezox is incredible for that task.

    Thanks for that recommendation. I hit it with some Ballistol and so far that has gotten some of it. I’ll see if I can find some Eezox.

    Order it on EBay. I think I have tried and used every cleaner known to man. For rust removal, you want Eezox. Use gloves, too.
