one thing I had done was to have the frame,barrel, slide, saftey levers, trigger, and slide stop sent off and black nitrided.. Waaay better than polycoat, and very rust resistant.

Cool - who did the nitriding? Was it expensive to have done?

H&M Metal processing, www.blacknitride.com It was $200 to do the pistol, I had CGW strip the frame and slide and send the parts to them to nitride, check out their website, there's alot of info there H&M is located in Akron, Ohio (actually, about 45 minutes away from me) they do excellant work,

Cool - so that is not too far removed, price-wise, from Cerakoting.

Thanks for the info!

Call them up and talk to them, if you can strip your frame, slide, down and reassemble yourself, it would be worth while to do it yourself.
  If I remember right the trunaround time was fairly quick, like about two weeks. But yeah, this is about a lightyear ahead Electroless Nickel plating, Cerakote, or any other paint on finish.. When David from CGWcalled to let me know that my pistol was done, I asked how the black nitriding turned out, and he was so impressed that they were considering using them  from then on in the future..
