Hi All,

I am going to buy a pre-customized XD Tactical from Canyon Creek, and the only remaining issue is whether to get the Fusion finish or not.

I am still a bit unclear as to how it is different than the factory finish.

1) Can anyone tell me what the appearance difference is?

2) Is there a significant benefit in regards to wear and/or rust?

Thanks very much,

Jim

(Currenty a Walther P99 shooter - love it - but looking forward to improved IDPA scores with the XD Tac)

Tony,

Thanks for the comparison pictures. After owning both, which do you like better aesthetically? Production finish, or Fusion finish?

Thanks again,

Jim

Fusion apparently.

If you are buying a prod. ready from Rich, it's going to be guncoated anyway. I like the look of the shiny sides w/ all the black accents, and if I'm spending that kind of money anyway, I'd splurge the extra 40-50 bux to get it to draw attention, but then, I've been accused of being a poser at times. :)

the bad thing about that finish is... it scratches at the slightest touch, and it doesnt protect well against rust (like all XDs :wink: )
