Well, the worn look of my Loaded (bought used) has finally gotten to me, and I am looking for something new; preferally in black. It's a dedicated range gun, so I am not conscerned about finish wear as it will only be handled during live and dry fire. What I am wondering is if the poylmer coatings (Armory Kote, Cobra Coat, etc.) can be applied over a stainless steel finish. Also, what do you guys recommend for a black finish? I hear good things about Black T, but I want to look at some other choices as well. I hear good things about Tripp, but very little about his polymer coatings... Any help will be much appreciated.
