    Para cote why?

    Why is Para still using this? I like their Hawg series and have considered getting one, but they all look to show serious wear to the finish after even low round counts. I think Para would be wise to change their coating process to the tennifer type coating that Glock uses on their weapons. My glock 26 has over 5,000 rounds through it and is carried most everyday and still looks new!

    Because people keep buying them like that. Why change to something that might cost more if people are buying them anyway even with a less durable finish?

    The coating is a phosphate finish, the tennifer is a treatment that is in the metal.

    also, the tennifer is something that no one but Glock knows how to make. Protected company proprietary secret and all that.

    There ARE better black oxide coatings out there that would be just as inexpensive and easy to apply.

    One that comes to mind is ULTRA BLAK 400.

    Theres always Duracoat? I really like the Para Hawg series as well, but due to other reasons I haven't/probable won't purchase one.

    the finish on my para gi expert is wearing faster than any gun i've ever owned. para kote is garbage. they have no reason to improve their finish, or any other aspect of their quality control when people (like me) keep buying them. i did no research before buying it, and had no idea.

    i will be correcting my mistake soon, though. it's getting sold as soon as the price is right.
