I thought I read somewhere on here that the finish wears off when used in a holster alot. I can't seem to find the post though. I would think the nitron finish is better than blued. Any comments on how they wear?

I noticed with the P239 that it is wearing much more quickly (on finish anyway) than on my P229 or 220. Not sure if they're using a different process / materials, but it's noticable. Maybe just a fluke, I'm not sure. It shoots & handles great though.

I've carried mine (1998 manufacture 9mm) almost daily in an Andrews Leather McDaniel II for 2 years with no sign of finish wear due to the holster.

Bought the 239 two months ago. The 229 was back in '98. Seems that the initial wear has leveled off, & is holding steady now. Both are nitron coated
