I don't know anything about SIG's K-Kote .. is it a nice finish?

The other option is blued.

edit: found some info, disregard

It's worse IMHO. I have a Sig P228 w/K-Kote & it hasn't worn well at all. I have an older Sig P226 by comparison that is blued & in much better shape. The K-Kote stuff just flakes off over time. Don't pay extra for it.

Heard the K-kote isn't all that great.

I believe it is the same product as Gun-Kote. Parkerized based metal then sprayed on Gun-kote. Search yahoo for tuff gun finish and you will find what you are looking for.

I have a 226 with the K-Kote. Don't waste your money on having it put on if it's extra. Mine lasted about 6 months, maybe a year tops. My slide has obvious bits of rust and I keep my weapon clean.

Edit: Just to be clear, my K-Kote was applied by Sig at the factory. You'd be better off with an aftermarket finish.

The K-Kote on my P228 is directly on the bare metal. No park because it wouldn't wear well against the aluminum frame.

K-kote is the same price, however, I was hoping it would offer better rust protection

agree

the K kote isn't impressive at all

Can't really tell a K-Kote from a none K-Kote gun.

If you keep the items clean and oiled you don't need the K-Kote.

Save the money for ammo.
