    Local shop here has a new moly coating designed for military apps they have been testing. Had it applied on the slide of the 40 and after testing tonight, it's going back to have all the internal frame parts done. Then the 45 goes in for the full treatment as well. (stainless is pretty, but no where near as close to hard as this stuff)

    One week turnaround too. :)
    Guy does FALs like no one's business and he had about 10 paratrooper models sitting there in the rack. All moly coated, railed, collapsible stocks. Talk about sweet.

    No, it was all black. I had it Gunkoted after getting back from overseas but that shit just wore and flaked off. I was going to get this new stuff in Black but said what the hell, let's do the gray for a change of pace.
    $65 for full coating and replacement of the front sight.

    Those ghost rings intrigue me.. was standardization of sight picture the idea behind them, or what? They look like they're can compatible, too.

    I have to say, if all XDs looked that nice, I would like them a lot more. Slide height is balanced, and the grip redux is fucking sweet.

    I gave them a try on a shop SIG awhile back and found them very fast for me for target aquisition. These are the nightsight versions. Takes all of about a mag of ammo to get accustomed to them. It's just natural for your eye to align a circle in a circle.

    Is this moly coating purely asthetic or does it serve other purposes? Looks killer:cool:
