This is what we do for the bitone look. IonBond PVD coatings that give you that bitone look on the steel slide.
We do not stock or have any OD frames and we don't have any in the shop currently. If someone sends one in, I'll snap a photo. The coating is an industrial grade tool coating and wears very well.How durable is the ion bond on the slide vs the barrel. Do you have any pictures of Ion bonded slides with OD frames. I'd like to know what an FDE slide would look like on an OD frame. That shouldn't be too hard to pull off with all the slides and frames you have laying around in your shop. I'd really appreciate a pic. (might earn you a customer if it looks good.)
The coating is only for metal parts, so you can not coat the plastic grip (frame) on the XD/XDM.
