Well, here is my whipping on a dead horse........

The bitone "looks" a little better to me and I THOUGHT it would be just about rust free. After following the rust threads and the refinishing threads, what is the best way to go?

1. bitone and a lot of rust preventive work
2. black and have it refinished in a stainless finish
3. bitone and a clear finish

Gosh! I think the rust thing gets blown outa proportion. If there is a metal part on any weapon there's a chance it may rust. If any unprotected metal is exposed to the elements then guess what? The US military even sends their weapons off for a Black-T finish. That said, get what you like. With proper care you should be able to avoid rust. I like a finish that's more scratch resistant so I went with an Armory Kote, though I had no rust problems with the original finish.

My vote = Bi-Tone and silicone!

Well, I've owned a bitone XD40 service for about a year now with 0 finish problems. I shoot it at least once a week, and clean it about once everyother week. All I use to clean it is Breakfree CLP. When I'm done cleaninging everything, make sure I wipe the entire slide with a clean rag with just a small bit of CLP in it to protect it. I do the same for my blued and parkerized guns too.

get a black and send it to be coated at Robar in NP3. the "norton special" is what you want from them. you get the look and the function, plus it doesn't need as much oil and is easier to clean.
