Moly over park.

A nice bluing will go a long way and it is not that expensive. I also like NP3 nickle/teflon based finish. I have NP3 on my Kimber and it has held up very well.

Park. I like it...a LOT!

I perfer blue.

Park, followed by bead blasted stainless.

Stainless, far less maintenance neccessary.

I don't even know what the bottom of the 1911 PD is but I absolutely love it. Whatever coating is on the Scandium is amazing. Very smooth, very easy to clean, sweat doesn't hurt it. I love it!

Boron carbide. Can even be applied over stainless to massively increase rust resistrance (should the finish ever be damaged).

tennifer or gunkote if not tennifer equipped

Parkerized for carry, stainless for the Range.

Parkerizing with a Moly/Epoxy overcoat

Stainless next

1. Tenifer (or Melonite )
2. Hard Chrome (matte)
3. Stainless Steel
4. Moly-Resin, DuraCoat, GunCoat, whatever over a parkerized finish.
4. Parkerized
5. Blue

I would not buy a gun with a nickel finish. Too gaudy for my tastes.

Although HK's hostile environment isn't bad
NP3 is good IMHO
Melonite........I'm not going to be convinced that it is as good/same thing as tennifer until I have a glock and a gun done in melonite side by side to compare and test.
Park is ok, but more prone to wearing,and less rust resistant than tennifer
