So far absolutely no signs of holster wear! Im extremely satisfied with the outcome of this!! Ive had about 4 people try as well and they love the finish it gives as well and durable.

Default Paint can be pretty tough.

I painted an old beat up M14 fiberglass stock with high temp BBQ flat black knowing that it would chip and scratch but could be touched up easily. After many, many outings I am still waiting for the first sign of wear.

Well its been over a full month now with the ceramic engine enamel project on my gen 4 19's slide and my report is that it is holding up exceptionally well so far! No holster wear of any sorts, it hasn't caused any malfunctions of the weapon( since i coated the under side portion of the slide as well) just dirtied up a few internals during the initial break in period. I also fed about 500 rounds at the range within about 45-60 minutes to warm it up pretty good and the paint held up without a flaw still....I highly recommend this to anyone on a budget or someone looking to add aesthetic appeal to a worn firearm of sorts. I am though uncertain as if i will eventually attempt to use the product on the polymer frame though. i did coat a glock brand iphone case i purchased a while back but cant locate it to see how it is today. If you have any questions or concerns on this project feel free to comment or private message me.

Just from what I know about metal and heat treatment I wouldn't touch that firearm. I'd hope my NRA insurance would cover it and get a new one.
You'd have to take mild carbon steel to over 1,600 degrees F for annealing followed by case hardening at the same temperature. The frame is Nylon 6/6 which will melt at around 520 degrees F, so it never saw over that. And it's not just the exposure temperature, it's the total time at temperature.

Thanks, looks good, in the top pic, perhaps some wear on the top edge of the slide, or is that just the pic?
