I have all the generations except for the first. My gen 4 27 didn't have any rust issues at all. But I sent it to failzero anyway bc I was bored. I can say that the nickel boron finish is freakin awesome durability wise

It's sad to see. Tennifer isn't even listed on the webpage or in the 2012 paper catalog. http://us.glock.com/technology Between this and (and the new problems of rusting) and the other issues of ejection I think I'm going to look for a G19 made in 2008.

My wife's G19 has a test fire date of 2/09 and my G30SF has a date of 1/09. Both have worked great. Unlike what was mentioned earlier I've never had to wipe down the slides with oil. I just wipe the dust off and solvent for the powder residue.

I really like the new matte gray finish. At first I didn't, but it quickly grew on me and now I wish all my G's had the gray finish.

Is that finish very expensive? They certainly look nice. I'd like to find an excellent semi-gloss black finish. I'm thinking about Duracoat.

"The new finish is just as good as Tenifer."

General Glocking

I've noticed that my early Gen 3's held up a heck of a lot better than my Gen 4.

I think the new gen 4's suck compared to the earlier years. I have an early edition of a 27 and 23, the finish has held up great. I have a gen 4 35 thats a little bit over a year old that has the finish worn and 2 small rust spots. I also have a new 35 I got 2 months ago and after less than 12 draws from a kydex holster has the finish wearing off at the front. I never had a problem with the older glocks. I am dissapointed in the new finish. I will only get older glocks, no more new ones for me.

Sounds similar to the difference in German Sig's with Ilafon finish compared to the US Sig's with Nitrite. I've tried to avoid US made Sig's for many reasons including the finish, all of mine are German except one. This makes me sorry I sold my old Gen 2 Glock 22 a few years ago, but it was just too large for my hands. I ordered a Gen 4 since the new backstraps do help, I will have to keep it well oiled it seems.

The first model pistol was called the model 1. It didn't work.
Models 2-16 had problems but model 17 was perfection.

Then came the other models.

Don't even ask me how I know this, but Gaston's Mom vacations in Wythe County a couple times a year and I take her catfishing on Claytor Lake.
You failed to mention an important detail. The Glock SEVEN model was fabulously successful, but fell into the wrong hands and was therefore banned by the US government after that notorious "airport incident". Gaston was so despondent over this imperious government action that it took him another ten design variants to come up with a commercially viable product. That despondency would also eventually destroy his first marriage.

I have a Gen 3 G23. I keep the slide wiped down with CLP, and I lightly dry off the excess. When I take it out of the holster, it has dry, white lookng streaks on the slide. The only way I've found to get rid of the white or gray streaks or spots, is to put CLP (or Remoil) on it again. No rust so far. If I don't find something better and more affordable, I'm going to have my G23 done in Duracoat, black semi-gloss.

Yeah, they are nice. Just glad that all of mine were manufactured prior to the 2010-2011 cut-off period for Tenifer.

Gen 3 is quality, but Gen TWO was the true golden age of Glockdom. Western civilization began its long slide to oblivion when Gaston put finger grooves on the frames!

Just one more reason (the EPA) to dislike that no good piece of garbage, Nixon.

Sorry for the extremely late reply. I've been away for a bit. No the failzero treatment costs 200 for slide and barrel. Leo get a discount but I can't remember how much. My 27 rides iwb on duty in humid Baltimire. Still looks brand new. Had my p2000sk, xds, and am in the process of sending in my new gen 4 23. 10 day turnaround. Can't beat it
