Multiple online sales sites cite that the slide is nitrided.I have read in several articles that the all metal version has a nitrided slide. Do you know if that is correct?
yes. info in person from factory visit. and now I am more conflicted over which version to get over grip feel. alloy is "rounder', more hand filling. poly slimmer and more rectangular. both feel good, just different. I bet the alloy could be fitted with even thinner after market grip panels that would split the difference. I suspect the alloy's wider grip might suck up recoil a bit better. is it worth the $? can't decide. but love the triggers. and I held a p40 and p9 at the same visit and world of difference in a good way.So if the slide is nitrided, there wouldn't be any point in having the slide refinished except for cosmetics.
