    Can you put DLC, or some other PVD, on top of nitro?



  2. Dacos127 on November 26, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Biased much? Your description of DLC was piss-poor. Not an eggshell whatsoever.



  3. Eric Smiley on November 26, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Ill stick with BlackT



  4. Chris Chiampo on November 26, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    What Is In Your Opinion The Most Durable Finish ??😎



  5. Rider's-Range on November 26, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Now you have me re-thinking the DLC – it may not be the best option. As Alexander Guzman commented, I’d like more info on finishes for alloy frame guns.



  6. HeavyJ318 on November 26, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Great videos! What would be the most durable finish to have gloss black finish? Like darth vaders helmet glossy.



  7. Scott. on November 26, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Duracoat on top of parkerized steel creates one heck of a bond. That combination works extremely well, especially if you go gloss.



  8. Scott. on November 26, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    I have 3 6” longslides. Then you had to come out with a 7”. Lol. I’m going to have to build one now.



  9. Rocketsong on November 26, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Great video Bob, very informative. I have a Dan Wesson Vigil with a ferretic nitro-carbonized finish, outstanding finish. Definitely my top choice, at least for the slide.



  10. Tony Romano on November 26, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Would spray on tighten up a 1911 frame to slide?



  11. Harry Callahan on November 26, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Bob…I have a 1911 that is parkerized. What are my re-finishing options? Can you strip it and give it hot salt bluing or nitrocarburizing? Or I am stuck with it being parkerized? Thanks.

    Awesome video Bob! Great info on most all the finishes and how the stand up. Merry Christmas to you and the crew, Vern



  13. DanTheWolfman on November 26, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Bob, very educational from someone that actually knows their stuff is nice. Seems like the black shield is definitely worth the bump up. I sent you and email last night from danthewolfman@hotmail.com



  14. Jeff D on November 26, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    What is the best black finish for stainless?



  15. GLOCKENSTEIN on November 26, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    What about armor lube



  16. Kirk Jones on November 26, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Again, another outstanding video. You should have quoted The Man "Comes in any color you like, as long as it’s Black.", he got away with that in the world market for 19 years.



  17. FinalLugiaGuardian on November 26, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    What type of finishes do the Gen 5 Glocks like the new Glock 17, new Glock 19, new Glock 26, silver Glock 43x, black Glock 43x, silver Glock 48, and black Glock 48 use? I’ve heard that both of the black and silver Glocks’ finish is called "nvd" finish, but I have no idea what "NVD" means.
    And do these new Glock finishes hold up better then the Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glock finishes?
    Please pardon me if this is a dumb question. I don’t want to make a dumb purchase if I decide to go with something like a Glock.



  18. Alexander Guzman on November 26, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    This has literally been the best video explaining the different finishes I have yet to see online! Great job Bob!

    In additions to the various colors I think it would be great to have a video explaining what actually works well for Aluminum frames as well.



  19. Glenn Gonzalez on November 26, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Can you nitro aluminum?



  20. Ray Kirkwood on November 26, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Interesting



  21. EisenKrieg on November 26, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Can you combine the black oxide with the nitro carburizing? As I understand stand the carburizing process, it hardens the steel itself and so it shouldn’t have a problem accepting a black oxide layer, right?



  22. Harry Callahan on November 26, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Nothing beats a nice hot salt bluing over a polished metal. If Fusion Firearms did it would be one notch up on your fine pistols!



  23. Benjamin A.Rosso on November 26, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Very informative, thank you for the presentation sir.



  24. Mike CR on November 26, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Lack of any focus –> Ritalin –> you need it
    Seriously, write down your ramblings here on paper & try to get through a reading of it…



  25. Oldpigsass on November 26, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    What about black-nickeling? It’s something I have only read about, I’ve never seen a black nickel finish.



  26. Psycho Gamer on November 26, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Is Black Shield is Matte Black??

    Please Answer…



  27. J'Are Mansa on November 26, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    is nitro-carbonized listed on your website under "black shield"?
    Thanks



  28. Mark Botta on November 26, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Is the nitro carburizing the same as your Black Shield Melonite option?



  29. 273VIPER on November 26, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Gorgeous! What triggers are those?
