I'm looking for a new gen 4 G22. My current one is pretty worn & I want to make it a range training pistol & carry an identical gen 4 G22. But the slide finish on mine is the grayish mess that just doesn't hold up well. Mine is well worn & it's only 2.5 years old. Is it luck of the draw or? I have seen other gen 4 guns with the black finish. If there's a certain time Glock will be making the black slides I can wait. And yes I know all about the finishes, & the coatings & it's just the outside finish, & it's a tool blah blah blah... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
