    I thought I would try to show what Ion Bond looks like. The first few pictures are straight out of the holster after a few weeks on duty. The last few are after a quick wipe down with a silicone cloth. It has around 1500 rounds through it with very few signs of wear, and absolutely no holster wear despite hundreds of draws.

    That looks awesome!! I like the coating on my TRP but that ion bond is sweet. Who did the work on your gun? Especially like the work done on the top if slide.

    Looks great. I just hate seeing those MIM hammers on those guns.

    The work was done by nighthawk. But now they have nearly doubled what they charge for Ion Bond.

    Yes, everything was coated.

    I have a railed TRP that is my primary duty gun that is having all of the MIM replaced.

    So far I have been very impressed by Ion Bond. It really seems to hold up to the abuse of being drawn and holstered several times a day. The only areas where it is showing wear is the hammer, around the firing pin, a little on the grip safety, and a little on the trigger. It's not invincible, but I think it is worth the money for a hard use gun. We will see how it holds up around the magwell as that seems to take he most beating from office chairs, car seats, doors, etc

    I love the look and durability of ion bond. After the bluing on my Baer starts fading, I plan to send it in for some custom touches and Ion Bonding.

    No matter how many other 1911's I fall in love with, the TRP has to be my next one. And it looks great with the IonBond. I may just have to send my RIA to get it done.
