Why no stainless or hard chrome?

Their G43X and G48 come with nPVD coated silver slides. Maybe they are testing it out to see if there’s a market for that finish. I think it’s mostly for corrosion resistance.

I've never seen a rusted Glock slide.  Perhaps Glock sees no need for this reason.

Some have rusted, there was a period four or five years ago I read of a number. I have one from the time that "blooms" rust from what I assume are small defects in the treatment if not oiled, the spots have turned to small pits . Supposedly Glock will refinish or replace, varying reports on charging for it or not, I haven't bothered.

Never knew of this.  I would send it back to Glock.
