Here's a few quick pics.
Natalie, asking questions is how we all learn.....The "silver" is usually stainless steel, if it is factory, but can also be hard chrome, NP3, nickle, or a few others that sort of fall in that same area. Stainless steel is brushed or polished to different degrees to obtain the desired luster.....the rest of those are either chemical or electro plated finishes. The "blue" is a chemical that is applied to the metal to give protection and will have a blue/black tint (hot blue will last longer and be deeper than cold blue)....the "black", is a finish that, iirc, became popular with the introduction of polymer firearms (glock).....help me out here, guys.....I don't really know how to explain this better.......Natalie said:Okay, here's another one of my not too bright questions. Is that gun blued? It looks black to me. What's the difference between the silver, blued and black guns?
Never got into the silicone cloths, but I heard they work well.What do I have to do to keep my SP101 from rusting?
