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 slide and barrel arrived better than stock it’s condition. The black nitride finish was pristine and solid. This should hold up well after daily holster use. Thanks Jagerwerks!

  • Nitride slide service on unsupported slide?

    Posted by Miran on May 25th 2023

    I bought the nitride coating service a couple years back during a sale, just in case, and finally had a decent amount of wear on one particular pistol after two years. Problem was, it wasn't one for which JW offered milling services. Oh no! I contacted JW and they instructed me to fully strip the slide, including sights, and I sent it in and they turned it around quickly for me. So maybe next time they have a sale, pick up a nitride service and keep it for when you have a slide that needs refinishing, even if it's an oddball. They don't expire and it's cheap insurance. JW rocks.

  • Great service and fast
