With this being a stainless steel slide, you probably don't want to go to the local garage to use their bead blaster. Those guys typically stick anything inside that will fit and the glass beads are really a mix of paint chips, carbon, rust, and carbon steel particles. When they are sprayed into your stainless slide under pressure, some of them will imbed in the slide and stay there. What you may experience is tiny black specs forming in a few weeks/months where the little specs of carbon steel rusts.
You won't know anything has gone wrong until you see the little specs turn dark. :scratch: I would at least try to find someone who doesn't use their machine to clean dirty parts and who has just loaded a fresh batch of beads.
