I'm looking at 226's on CDNN and they have blue, k-kote, and two tone. What is the finish on the two tone slide? Is the frame alloy on all of them? Is there any reason I shouldent just get the K-kote?? Thanks

I guess the correct way to look at things here is:

you dont go to florida to buy Spuds, or idaho to pick out oranges.

SigForum for Sigs.

Looks, slightly increased corrosion resistance. The CDNN's are nickled. Hard Chrome is better, and what I plan to get for my two tone P228 later on.

Hard chrome is leaps and bounds better. Get it if at all possible!

And drew, I love your sig line

K-kote is synonym for rust bucket.

Avoid k kote

Makes your pistol more visible when you whip it out on the bad guy at night.

My P228 is a two tone- NP3/black anodized frame. The NP3 is great, but Robar sure takes their time.

Forgot to add- I had several magazines hard chromed for my P226 ST. It is a very durable finish, but I actually prefer the NP3.

My two-toned 226 is gorgeous. Its funny to see many gun pics here and there and never see one like mine.

Ok, I have some blued sigs so are they going to rust out? there about 3 years old and I lube at least every four months. Unfortunately due to frequent moves I keep the ones not for home protection in there cases, I know I need a safe but hopefully next year. What can I do now to preserve there life? What is NP3 and what other finishes do you recommend and who ?


Thx

I got my son a P220 in 2 tone. The FBI neighbor calls it the "Pimp Daddy" gun. Bit he LOVES it!

If there's one weakness to the Sig line, it's the fragility of the finish on their "blue" guns - e.g. non-nitron coated blue steel. All my current Sigs are Nitron'd, but that only applies to the slide; the controls (decocker, slide release, take down, trigger) are just plain blued; they need nearly daily attention here in coastal S. Texas or they'll rust up...

I don't care for the look of Sig's two tone, myself, but the price difference at CDNN might make it worth the effort. FWIW, Virgil Tripp does the best chrome work in the country, and he charges about $175 + shipping to refinish a Sig...

Regards,

Kevin

If you keep a blued Sig clean, with a light coat of oil, its fine. If left dry, it may get a bit rusty.

The reverse two tone gun of the month sigs are really sweet looking......

Nope this is the Reverse Tu-tone gun of the week






It is my new P228 stamped w. german made in 1994 had a teflon finish put on it.

Would Virgil Tripp be able to replicate the Reverse Tu-Tone with Hard Chrome? By that I mean leave the slide matte and hardchrome the body?

I might as well email Tripp Research but I thought I would ask here first.

Tripp doesn't chrome aluminum, which is what most sig frames are made out of. He can blast the black off to give it a silver look, or coat it with silver cobra coat (see website).

Accurate Plating and Weaponry does chrome aluminum frames.

Personally I like stainless because I can see where the dirt is making it easier to get things perfectly clean.
