Price of a new gun??? It was only about $85 and I didn't have to disassemble the slide.

I think there's about a $50 difference between a new bitone and black, but once you've bought it, you're choices are limited.

BTW - I finally got around to shooting it. The slide action is so much smoother - a very noticeable difference. And after 200 rnds, it wiped off clean with a soft gun cloth. I cleaned it when I got home and found nothing remarkable about cleaning it. I used Hoppes 9, some aerosol spray gun cleaner and CLP on it. No smudging or smearing or finger prints. I finished up with a little 409 around the sights. It handled them all well, though it looked a little dull after first spraying it with the aerosol cleaner. But perked back up with Hoppes or CLP.

Also, the brushed aluminum color is a tad brighter than the factory bitone, but I'm happy with the choice I made.

I should contact the aforementioned coating company and see if they can offer that service as part of slide cerakoat application.
Usually disassembly of the slide, including removing the sights is part of the price. Sometimes they offer discounts if you send it in already disassembled.
