I wonder about this finish because i dont know if its the same as blued? Also another think i would like to know is when cleaning it is it ok to get oil (rem oil i.e.) or solvent hopps 9 on it without damaging it?
It isnt the same as blued its tougher. My p220 has the nitron finish on it. It has some very light surface rust on the outside of the slide on the left side only from carrying. I dont clean it nearly as often as i should though.
Had a Sig a long time ago with Nitron finish, and the only thing about it that slightly annoyed me was how the finish tended to look blotchy and uneven when I oiled it. Took a LOT of wiping to even it out so it didn't look like the outside of a greasy fast food bag. It will take a beating, though, and it never seemed to show wear marks from holsters or scratch easily either.
