    SP101 question

    I have seen a couple of SP101s with a grey finish from the factory. I really like it and am willing to pay the extra 70-80.00.
    My only concern is the finishes durability. Does anyone have one of these and how has the finish held up?

    I have a pair. One in a sp101 and one in a GP100.
    I believe they are acid etched. I have carried the sp101 on occassion with no ill results.

    SP-101 2.25 finish

    I have a .45 caliber SP-101 SS. Have been using it IWB for quite a while. Only finish degraded from holster wear, but polishes up easily.

    If you can't find any of those factory greys, bead blasting comes pretty close..I had mine done with a package at Gemini but i imagine you could have it done locally in some machine shpr for under 50 bucks,

    I personally like the bright chrome finish or stainless. If it gets a scratch which it will, you can buff it out. Steve 48
