    Your Opinion- slide finish for Glock23

    Hey All,
    I recently had a post about buying a custom Glock 23. After waiting and watching for the right gun, I bought a used G23 with night sights and extra mag for $350. The gun hasn't been shot much but had some holster wear.

    I realy miss the contoured slide of my G26 and wanted the same on a G19 or 23. Yesterday with a disk grinder, file and dremmel I trimmed the nose to look almost exactly like the subcompact 26 & 27. All I need to do now is refinish it, get a .357 barrel and I've got exactly what I want.

    I'd like your opinion on what finish is best for longevity, wear, etc for a carry gun. My idea is to either:
    1. NP3 from robar http://www.robarguns.com/np3.htm
    2. Hard Chrome
    3. Polymer finish http://www.robarguns.com/roguard.htm

    Thanks for your input!

    Ya can't go wrong with any one of those three choices, i think it is a matter of how pimptastic you want it to look!

    There are always claims that "this is the best product." I understand thats marketing and how products get sold. In a laboratory or on Mythbusters, one will prove to have the highest hardness or longest wear, etc.

    I would like to know from the members experience- from carrying a gun for months- which lasted better to protect a gun.

    I like hard chrome

    I have two Glocks finished with hard chrome on the slide, a G19 and a G23. The finish looks like stainless steel and is very hard and scratch resistant. Neither gun shows any wear after a number of years of being shot and carried. Here is the G23, which was plated by Arotek. The gun also has Arotek's extended mag release, slide stop and night sights.

    Satin or matte hard chrome is a very nice looking finish.
    Just my openguin on that. Properly done...it's a forever finish.
