1911 polished slide?

Anybody send out their slide to have it polished? I seen a Springfield at the range last week and it looks awesome. He sent it somewhere in Florida and the thing looks like chrome. Thinking I would like to have my SR1911 9mm slide done but would like to see a Ruger already done. Also I think Ruger laser etches their logo on the slide will that be gone after polishing?

You can keep your high shine polished 1911 slides. Wait until you are firing the pistol with the sun behind and over your shoulder and the reflection from the rear of the slide prevents you from seeing the sights. Could cost you your life in a self defense incident.
