Thank you!  I was all set on an Urban Grey P07 but this pic gave me a little pause - the black and Tungsten slide looks amazing to me.

Agreed! :-) IIRC Vinny has a P-09 done up similarly.

Really pleased with the durability and lubricity of Ceracote finishes. I've wanted to do Tungsten, but my P-09 posted at top (reply #35) is actually Stainless, and P-07 is Titanium. All good colors. JMO  -Vinny

If you want a bead blasted stainless/chrome look that is more durable than Cerakote or chrome look at CCR and their CP II
finish.

Thanks for the clarification!  So was it still Jagerworks that did it?  I don't see either of those two color options listed on their site.

Primary Machine did mine. Their info center shows all the color choices. I really like the Titanium best against the black frame. JMO

Primary Machine cerakoted my P07 and P09 slides after machining them for the RMRs and the BUIS.  The P07 goes in/out of a kydex holster almost every day and just started to show wear through at the front corners of the slide maybe 8 or 10 months ago.  So I got about 3 years out of the finish, on those corners.  The rest of it still looks new.

I'd have to agree though, I'm thinking of getting a couple of Compacts refinished and i want something more durable even than cerakote.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Cerakote can wear quickly as it is just good paint.  The best, but just paint.  PVD wears MUCH better.  As the review SHOWS above, you can run CP II for many years with no wear. 

Keep in mind that the original nitrocarb. finish CZ uses on P07 slides is one of the best out there and MUCH better than Cerakote.

Mine is a standard  P-07 but it's probably my primary carry at the moment. You can't go wrong with a P-07, it's an outstanding pistol

Very nice!!  What finish is on the slide on the right, and who did it for you?

The finish part I can answer: Tungsten Cerakote ... an awesome color IMO

Jagerwerks did the slide work, I think - not sure if they outsourced the Cerakote part.

The Tungsten slide P-07 is my absolute favorite gun, and it gets carried the most out of my various carry guns.  Jagerwerks did the RMR milling on both slides and also did the Cerakote on the Tungsten slide (the other slide is still the factory finish).
