I have purchased 3 Glocks within the last 2 months, a G36, a G21 Gen 4 and a G34 Gen 4. They all have the old style slick "teflon-like" finish on the slides. Has Glock moved away from the flatter, almost dark gray finish that they were using for a while? I definitely like the old style finish on my new guns better than the flat finish that I saw on new Glocks about a year ago.
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
It appears that glock is going back to the shinier finish, but this time it looks more semi gloss, not as shiny as before.
I guess glock compromised with something in between.
My new gen4 19 has the new semi gloss finish, I like it.
2nd Gen G17.....very flat black tennifer. When completely dry, looks almost chalky white.
3rd Gen G19....almost a ceramic shiny coating.
Much prefer the Gen 3 finish. For a while, Glock did go back to the older flat finish. Glad to see they saw the error of their ways.

The new finish they were using SUCKS. Period. I'm glad to hear they are going back to the old finish.
I kind of like the new finish, it’s more uniform with the color of the rest of the gun. The real test is to see if it holds up as good as the earlier finishes. I just got my G26 and it is showing signs of holster wear already
I suspect it will hold up fine. The melonite is in the metal which is what is important to me.
