As far as I heard, Tenifer and Melonite are metal treatments, which some say are equivalent or different names for the same metal treatment or process.
After the metal treatment, Glock applies a second coating/outside finish to the slide, barrel and other parts.
US Made Glocks have a Melonite treatment.
What we refer to as a frying pan finish is that second (super durable) outside finish.

The only question is that he has a USA made Glock. I believe Glock changed the outside coating/finish by the time they starting building guns in the US.
I’m not talking about the Tenifer/Melonite change. I believe the outside coating/finish was changed as well.

Changed to…what?

Do you suppose if I called Glock, they could tell me? I understand Glock is pretty good about answering consumers’ questions.
Don’t know. And as I previously mentioned, there is nothing wrong with it.
People like the frying pan finish because it is more holster wear/overall wear resistant. But a few scratches are not going to hurt the gun.
