    I wanted to venture into a new caliber, and I had decided it would be .38 Super. I was perusing the classifieds for .38 Super pistols and came across a stainless, unfired Nighthawk from fellow member BCD 45, who just happens to be one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever encountered. We...

    Hey fellow addicts, any recommendations on where to get my whole pistol DLC? Not really looking to do any other work (maybe change the trigger from 3 hole to solid flat). Thanks!

    I can't wait to get my 9mm VBOB slide back from Evolution Armory next month -- it's being DLC'd, the sights replaced, a French Border and flattened/serrated slide-top, so I'll have a very unique two/tone bobtail to slide in between these two 38 super's, The trio will be complete with a VBOB...

    I sent in my EDC X9 a few weeks ago to Wilson for the optic cut on the slide, a magwell and a few other cosmetic changes. I decided to get the gray frame as the refinish once the do the magwell and had selected the DLC slide because I was very disappointed with the black AT finish on the slide...

    So I learned today that Wilson z Comcast offers their EDC platform with aDLC slice instead of the Armor Tuff finish. Since the AT finish isn't really all that tough, especially compared to DLC, I was told about the DLC and that whilr black it was not an exact black like the anodized frames...

    To start off with HERE is a great resource on the different types of contemporary gun finishes. The two primary motivators behind factory & aftermarket finishes are APPEARANCE & CORROSION RESISTANCE. Some do one much better than the other. Some do both reasonably well. The purpose of today's...

    I just got a stainless Renaissance in the mail. It looks so much better in person, but I also am considering DLC for a premium refinish. I'd like it to be charcoal or a steel gray.. but my understanding is DLC (ionbond) is BLACK when oiled. I'd like the rust prevention and durability of...

    Focusing down on my custom order for a quantico and having a real hard time choosing between the standard blued vs dlc offering. I’ve seen examples of both on other manufacturers but haven’t seen an alchemy in person. Pictures of the blued guns alchemy puts out are gorgeous but I am worried...

    Pondering a new build. Originally I had planned on doing Turnbull Charcoal Bluing. But after seeing some pictures of high polish DLC, might be changing my tune. It can really be done up nice. Obviously, Turnbull blue is gorgeous, but I also hear it's one of the least durable bluing options...

    Just wondering what the difference is between DLC and DVC finish/coating. I’ve seen new Staccato C pistols listed both ways. Should I be looking at one over the other?
