    Default How many have NP3 slide AND barrel combo?

    How are you liking it? How has the metal matured with use? Is that the best combination/application or would a Suarez black barrel suffice because the slide is NP3?

    Over all thoughts?

    Thanks!

    NP3 protects the metal, makes it easier to clean, amd makes the surfaces very slick ( although you should still lubricate the gun). I prefer all the parts to be coded. But if it is only the slide that is better than nothing.

    I have a few guns that have been coated. It has held up extremely well over the years

    I have a pistol with everything NP3'd but the frame. Only has a little over 1k rounds through it, but the wear is minimal to none besides the barrel.

    I had my first SI 19 slide (TSD at the time) done both slide and barrel for 5 years of constant carry and borderline abuse. Barrel had the tell tale rub but was still definitely coated/ protected. Wish I’d done that instead of black barrel on my new one but such is life.
