i just got a kwa m18c off ebay, it has a sanded slide and the previous owner did a pour job on sanding it down. also there is a small chip near the back plate that annoys me. i was wondering if someone knows a reliable site preferably in the US that sells metal m18c slides.

You will probably need to look for after market slides form "other" manufacturers.  Most of the time those can be found on the overseas sites like eHobbyAsia, Tokyo Model Company, etc.

About a week.  They seem to be faster than Tokyo Model Co. :gun:

So true.
I ordered something from Tokyo model company and it took about 3 weeks to get to me. :thumbsdown:
But they were very nice and always responded to my emails. :thumbsup:

Dude... you could always just but paint and re-paint the slide with around 3 coats? It worked wonders on my KWA M19. Get Krylon FusionX Camouflage.

It also looks like a** if you do it wrong...which 99% of the time it will. Plus nothing beats engraved accurate trademarks.

I suggest a PGC slide.
