    Um, I'm not sure.

    I saw a Para slide that had broken in half at the ejection port and it looked like whipped steel. Maybe pewter. I don't know if they make their frames out of the same stuff or not...

    What is "Finish: Covert Black Para Kote™"? Sounds alot like duracote or some kind of spray paint finish.

    The finish is OK.

    I have no problem with Para's frames. Its the slides that should not be cast.
