Heh, Heh, I go pick mine up today....

The press release is here: http://www.carl-walther.de/aktuell/Pressetext_IWA2002_Defense_engl.doc

The slide of the „P99 TITANIUM COATED“ pistol is treated with a plasma nitriding and is finished with a titan coating. In addition to the attractive two-tone effect of the pistol, the slide also features:

Ø Resistance to wear
Ø Excellent rust protection
Ø High impact strength

I'll let you know how it looks tonight

Oh, man, you guys are really bumming me out.

You're just jealous, dissin' my Titanium P99


I did take a ball-peen hammer to it last night and there's not a mark on it!


Seriously though, I'll reserve judgement until I shoot it.

Regards,
James

Well, I can say from personal experience
that the slides are not impervious to scratches. Mine now has a nice hairline scratch just below the rear sight on the right side because James is a doofus and didn't use the plastic yellow thingy to suppress the plunger, instead using the metal tool that is used to remove the front sight screw when installing his new Meprolight nite sites.

#$#@$ I'm pissed. Oh well, it's going to be my shooter now, we'll see what my Kydex holster does to it.

Maybe I'll get it Hard Chromed
