    Which one of these finishes would you think to be the most durable and lustrous for 1911 pistol. FWIW, I dont carry. Thanks!

    Have you considered Robar?

    Roguard or NP3? Roguard I think much more durable than Black T; had roguard on a Colt and BlackT on a P-12; BT peeled in the box in shipping.

    NP3 is another of their proprietary finishes and is extremely durable; comes out a sort of pewter grey color which I think is sexy, and even better with some surface prep before refinish. Their service is great too.

    Cheers,TF

    Black T. If it's good enough for the FBI, Navy, and Special Forces, it will probably work for you. I sure wouldn't call it lustrous. Maybe hard chrome.

    I think BaerCoat and Black T are the same - Teflon. My BaerCoat is not very durable - soft and wears off easily. I'd recommend something else.
