    I was just curious to which finish everyone prefers..

    1.)The new gray matte finish

    2.)Shiny black finish

    3.)Nickel Boron EXO Finish

    I was curious because all my other glocks in the past have been the shiny black teflon finish and I really prefer it to my new glock 19 that has the new gray matte finish...

    I liked the old black finish, it was very scratch resistant.

    My new Gen4 G23 has the new finish. At first I was a little worried it would not hold up. However, it seems to be holding up so far. It has been my primary CCW for the last few months with no issues.

    I hate my teflon like shiny black finish. I much prefer any of the flat black grippy parkerized style finish.

    Shiny finish, it's bulletproof.

    I agree.
    Ten years of carrying mine, sometimes in a duty holster but usually plain clothes. Finish literally looks brand new. I've seem them with scratches, but i always wonder how.

    I like the black shiny finish. The gray dull finish just doesnt look all that appealing. Should be interesting to see how it holds up over time.

    My G19 has the black finish. I prefer the look of the black slide, but it doesn't have the grip that my G26 with the matte finish affords me. Can't have it both ways I suppose. I saw a couple of EXO G26s recently. Good thing I didn't ask to look at them, I probably would have left the shop with one of them.

    The shiny finish looks better, and is a bit more durable but the new grey finish is much easier to grip, especially when wet. Plus there is no glare. I like the new finish, and I have both.
