hell yeah they do. and its way better to support your locall store or ffl holder imo. they are more likely to cut you a deal on the gun and give you a discount on all the stuff you buy with it.

I've worked in the Firearms industry for a while and the XD is the one I sell to my friends. I may own a few Springfield Armory's (possibly longer and shorter ones) and they make good stuff at a good price, to boot.

My vote: Bi-Tone stainless. And if it's too shiny for your liking, tuff-coat the slide. It won't rust from holster wear and body sweat.

Tuffcote or Tuffcoat is a general name for a type of power-coating, although most don't require a thermal curing, so It's not damaging to heat sensitive components.

The only one I've knowingly seen in person is an Xtremcoat™ AR-15 stainless bull barrel done by http://www.usanodizing.com/services.htm

There are many different companies out there in WWW land. And a good local gun shop (not cabela's, etc...) may be a good lead for a local company.


Edit: Springfield has Armory Kote™ for their 1911's. You could look into their custom shop doing the work.

I voted "get a different gun", cause I'm a Sig man. Love my Sig!!!

Your question depends:

Is this your 1st pistol? Reason I ask is because I could see you getting an OD colored one if you had 2 others laying around. Else, get the traditional black on black.

Stainless is nice as well, but you'll pay for it.

I own two black/black pistols, so...
