Last week, I found a tiny rust spot on my TCP. (Oh, how I wish Glock would make a 9mm single-stack...)

Anyway, my brother works for a company that applies various titanium coatings on tools. He stripped off the ugly finish and gave the slide a Titanium Carbonitride (TiCN) coating. I think it turned out pretty good:

Even though it is not a Glock, that is cool!

Nice...is that the only color Titanium Carbonitride comes in ?!
The color is actually closer to brown - it's showing up much closer to "pink" due to the flash.

His company does Titanium Nitride (gold), TiCN (violet-tinted brown), Aluminum Titanium Nitride (gray-black) and Titanium DiBoride (medium gray). They don't do much cosmetic work - they are focused on industrial machining tools, mostly.

They look like they did a good job. Can they do nickel boron? That is what Fail Zero uses as a coating, very hard and almost rust proof.

Well, a titanium coating for industrial use on tools should wear well for years on a firearm...good idea !

Picked up some Loctite C5-A (formerly Felpro C5-A) and this gun runs real nice now. C5-A is the copper goo that Glock puts on their slide rails before they ship.

A 1oz tube of the stuff was the same price as a 1 pound tub, so I bought the tub and I've got plenty extra. If anyone wants some, PM me. I've packed 2.5ml of it in 3ml syringes, each tube should do about 20-25 guns.

I talked to my brother today. He confirmed that his company doesn't do nickel boron. They do a titanium diboride coating that he thinks is somewhat similar. He coated an M&P 40 slide with it, but I haven't seen it yet.

They recommend titanium diboride coatings for machining aluminum. It is supposed to have high lubricity, which is obviously a good thing for sliding parts.
