I have been very tempted by the P226 9mm as it is a shooter (from my readings), a looker (gray gun) and just melts into my shooting hand - great feel and design. What I have seen looking at two different examples opened brand new before me is that the gray metal coating will flake of (very small flake/s on the sharp edges of the mag well) simply by wiping the factory oil off for my inspection prior to my potential purchase. Left are telltale specs of exposed bare shiny metal and disappointment. Also, I know the Sig name carries a premium but it appears somewhat overpriced for what seems to be a quasi-modular factory handgun. For those that know, what has been your experience? Thanks.
