Armory Kote is most definitely NOT standard blue.

Tennifer is a metal treatment, not a surface finish. The finish can be worn down to "bare metal' on a Glock slide, it still won't rust. I believe there is a similar metal treatment available in the US, but someone else will have to tell you the name of it, I don't know.

I so wish people would quit calling tennifer a frickin finish. It is getting as annoying as people refering to hi capacity clips

Do we still have a thread listing the different "finishes" and descriptions of such? I have to admit I don't really know which is which...

I believe it's been two months... maybe 3... since I had my XD Armory Koted...
Overkill, how did you go about getting your gun "Armory Koted?"

I already have a couple scratches and some minor wear on my slide, after only about 450 rounds.

Does Springfield do this under warranty and, if so, do you have to have a specific reason to be sending it back in?

Thanks.

Had mine done under warranty but I had some rust issues, to make a long story short I had my XDSC for about 3 months and noticed some rust issues some I rubbed it down with #oooo steel wool and ran cold blue over it and then I had heard from all to knowledgable people that Springfield would take care of it and they sure did in about 10 days I got her back in Armory Kote and it only cost $8.00 for S/h
