    Saw this on Bud website, no further description. Do they coated with aluminum or make the entire slide out of aluminum ? Can someone clear this for me ? Thanks and regards.

    Clear at the bottom under firearm specifications it says:
    Frame Finish: Purple Cerakote
    Slide Finish : Aluminum Cerakote

    Aluminum refers to the color of the slides finish, not what the slide is made from

    An aluminum slide would beat the gun to pieces. To light. The spring would have to be so heavy that it would be almost impossible to pull back
