Titanium Nitride(sp?) Also, ROBAR's Np3 finish is very hard to beat. I also like plain old Electroless Nickel and Black T very much. One of my Sigs has ROBARs Roguard finish in it, and it is really good as well. Tyler

I had a rifle done by Mac's at [url]www.shootiniron.com[/url] It is an Egyptian Maadi AK, and they have notoriously bad finishes, a thick, uneven black paint. He stripped it down to nothing, then put a really nice flat black finish on with excellent attention to detail. I am very pleased with it. I actually just sent him an e-mail this morning about doing two more jobs.

QPQ - Quench Polish Quench, a grey finish, I have never seen it personally, but I believe it is available for the Walther P99. I don't know of any company offering it as a re-finishing option though.

Tennifer. "Glock's metal parts are finished with a Tennifer coating. Tennifer gives these parts a hardness of 69 RC. This is extremely hard when compared to the hardness of an industrial diamond at 70 RC."

Walter Birdsong's Black-T is better. They take the gun completely apart and treat everything, including springs, except the inside of the barrel. No website. 601-939-7448. He does a lot of work for the FBI, SEALS, etc. Don't worry, he is the most pro-gun person you will ever meet. I posted this on the other thread you started on the same subject.

Robar's finishes are excellect. I have a roguard finish pistol that I abuse a lot at the range.

I agree about Tennifer. It's one of the many reasons I love GLOCKs. I don't think (have heard it many times, but no definative source) that the EPA will not allow the treatment to be done in the US.

"Glock's metal parts are finished with a Tennifer coating. Tennifer gives these parts a hardness of 69 RC. This is extremely hard when compared to the hardness of an industrial diamond at 70 RC." thats all well and good, and maybe im a little rusting in my metallurgy (sp?) but wouldnt that make them brittle and subject to fracture? diamonds are very hard but will shear apart.

I'm no metal specialist either but I have never seen a fractured Glock before. I have seen the results of a KaBoom & there is not much left afterwards but that is possible on other firearms as well. I suppose anything is possible but I've seen some Glocks put through hell & still look & work ok. I'm going by what a gunsmith & I had been discussing regarding different finishes. His goal was to get a 1911 finished in Tennifer but he has yet to achieve that.
