TiN the barrel

After seeing the PPQ M1 with TiN barrel, I thought it'd be cool to TiN my SC barrel..
But I am thinking now that some of the factory markings will be gone..
The 9X19mm should stay, as should the serial number, since those are engraved/etched..
Not so sure about the Walther logo and.. "CIP N" whatever that is

Without this sign, I think, the weapon is illegal in CIP-Countries. Could be relevant for selling it later.

I TiN coated my barrel, all markings are visible. See the first picture in my thread here:

My favorite finish is wear that I've put on the pistol from shooting it.

I'd suggest using the funds for ammunition and practice. I can count on one hand (and maybe one finger) the amount of times I've heard of barrels on these pistols suffering from corrosion issues in the 22 years the 99-series pistols have been available. The barrel and slide are nitrocarburized. Any aftermarket finish is not going to do much other than be applied for looks only, and if the pistol is fired with any regularity, the aftermarket finish will eventually wear as well.

Most of my Walthers have gone "swimming" in the ocean and about the only issue I've ever had was one back strap roll pin on my Q First Edition had some rust and a tiny spot of rust on the mag release button of my Q45...

All finishes are going to wear but unless you are doing something really nasty your Q won't rust away...

Who would even care to check? Certainly not an issue in the US. No one would care.

It’s only for appearance. Only reason why I sent mine out. Cheap $50. I have wasted more on more worthless crap.

I have a 5" ppq m2, Been debating on Tin coating the slide and making the barrel silver. Would look great with the slots on the slide.
