The finish is durable, but it does scratch easily - but, even if you scratched a large portion, it is still protected by the tennifer - the black coating is just a carbon coating - the tennifer is underneath, and is bonded to the metal.

No, the do not cover the finish under the warranty when it comes to physical wear.

If it bothers U - just get the slide hard chromed. U have a cool 2-tone look. And, unless you scrape it across the cement or scratch it with another piece of metal, U get no wear - Hard chrome is the most durable gun finish there is as far as physical wear is concerned.

I did my P99 compact because of holster wear. Now, after 8 months, not a single mark on the gun. Also did my SW99, and am waiting to get my fullsize P99 slide back right now...

Yea, thats what I was thinking. Do you mind telling me the price it cost you to hard chrome the slide with shipping and everything? Where did you get the work done?

Well, before March 1st, the cost was $80 + $12 return shipping. He went up. I THINK it is $135 + shipping now - I really don't know. I sent my last slide anyway - we'll see what it costs exactly when I get it back...
