If holster wear/durability is a concern then we highly recommend going with our Black Nitride as Cerakote is a wearable item.
Black Nitride adds roughly 3 weeks to your slide order. Items sent in only for black Nitride have a 3-6 week turn around time.
The Salt Bath Nitride process is a Thermo Chemical treatment that improves wear resistance and corrosion resistance of ferrous metals with little or no dimensional change.
If you send in a slide that we do not offer milling for you will have to have it completely disassembled. Please remove the irons and all internals. If you fail to do this we will refund the order and return the slides.

The coating on my slide turned out great. Quality and finish are top notch. The guys were nice enough to do my Taurus slide even though they don’t work on them. First class company and customer service.
Second slide they have coated for me. I have no complaints.
Great service. I'm glad someone in the industry is doing it. I would like them to do rifle barrels too. Not AR-15 barrels, but AK barrels, 10/22 barrels, etc.
I recently sent in the slide to a 19x for the nitride treatment. I received it back 5 weeks to the day that I sent it. It looks great. I’ll be sending another slide in next week.
