If you give Springfield a call, they can tell you which finish your pistol has.So... how do you know what finish you have? I bought my XD40 Tactical about 2 years ago. Black / Black. Don't know what finish my slide has. Is there any way to tell? Mine does not have any rust on it, but I have to admit that I don't shoot it nearly as often as I would like to.
All the best,
That was back when they still had hieroglyphics on the slide lolI remember reading not long after the XD first came out that the slides were prone to rusting, and someone told me that the finish has been changed. Is this true? I know everything says they have a "Melonite" finish. What the heck is Melonite?
