    I hadn't taken my gun out of my glovebox in probably a month.. I took it out the other day and there was rust on the slide :hs:

    Granted, I live in Florida where it's about 90% humidity every single day.. oh well.

    i'd rather have some aesthetic rust on my xd slide than a non-rusted glock.

    I post severe rust that leaves pit marks... you post surface rust that every gun gets wipes right off...and the most rusted part is sights from Novak which are known to rust, not the actual gun itself. Than a defective slide which S&W replaced for the guy and gave him free goodies for the hastle :rolleyes:

    I guess you're too blind to see your own picture you posted?

    and the glock I posted above was rusted that bad, sent back to glock, and returned like the bottom picture...with rust pit marks.

    It's a relatively new gun all together. S&W said they had a small amount that weren't treated properly and anybody that has one they've been retreating if not replacing the entire slide/barrel and giving you an extra mag and sometimes night sights too for the troubles. There's been very few w/ the problem and as usual S&W CS is right there on top of it.

    shit like that XD above is why I didn't get one, even certain CLP's (Blue Wonder) actually Enhance the rust.

    Walther P99's don't rust thanks to their higher end super extra german tenifer

    (lets see who has pics of a rusted p99...)

    At one time that was probably true, I don't think that applies today. The XD, M&P, Sig, Walther, and I think even HK lines all use a tenifer process on their metals today. Earlier sigs, xd's, etc did not.

    yet it's also been posted the company who does the Tennifer finish says Melonite is just another name for Tennifer. (it's the same thing.) It says it right on their website.

    you'd think they'd put the cyanide to good use:dunno:

    Does that mean with the Glock US factory I've seen talks about online that there's going to be a whole Austria > USA Glock rant next

    I'm no metallurgist but I'm not sure how much I buy into the base metals making a significant difference at least assuming they're both suitable for this application. Is it really that likely that the carbon steel slide of a glock is more rust resistant to start with than the stainless slide on a m&p or sig (my apologies to xd, don't know what they are)?

    I'd like to read any info you have on sig's process, I was under the impression it was something different. This is not a nitrocarburizing qpq process?
    Redarding tenifer/melonite, you know to let the owners of the process know that, they claim they're trade names and not different processes
    I've also heard that the modern tenifer process is also arsenic/cyanide/baby killer free anyway but haven't tried to confirm that.

    On a side note, fill me in with what you know about ionbond. I haven't read much about it and am thinking about buying a bcg for an ar15 with it for easier cleaning but haven't decided if thats a waste or not.

    actually there's a diff. I was kinda pissed cause I went with the M&P over the PX4 from all the stainless is better reading. I than found out later that the Melonite treatment does nothing extra for corrosion on stainless where as it does on normal metal. :greddy:

    True but the site that was brought up and thread was written in a way to suggest they had the patent on it and it only was done through that company.

    I started my reply before they were posted :big grin:

    Have you noticed anything as far as easier cleaning goes? It looks like it'll be about $60-70 more to get a complete bcg done with it and there having carbon come off easier is the only benefit I can see really getting from it.
