    Some of you all likely caught the last post I made a few weeks ago comparing my EDC X9 and Custom Glock 19. One of the few things that I was not happy about with my X9 was the AT finish Wilson had applied.

    Sure, I got the pistol used, and at a great price... but Wilson applicators always seem to disappoint me in the application of their AT/Cerakote product. I have quite a bit of experience with Cerakote and even do some application at a shop near me from time to time (when time allows me to get there).

    So I took half a Saturday and decided to correct the finish Wilson applied myself!

    About a month ago I saw an EDC X9 “black edition” and seriously thought it looked great... I am a big fan of “murdered out” Cerakoted pistol... so that’s the route I decided to go.

    **Started messing with the trigger (was going to attempt something and decided not to, thats why you see a small scratch... Ill wait until it starts driving me nuts and fix it).

    Figured I would share some picture of it to get opinions!

    In terms of cerakote IMO it looks by far the best.

    Looks good, nice work. That's a good shade of black.

    Love the blacked out look as well. I will agree that the AT doesn’t seem to hold up well. Confirmed by Wilson, I currently own the first off the line Black edition X9. First mag thru it the AT was coming off the hood. Don’t get me wrong, absolutely love the pistol.
    Hopefully your new finish holds strong. Looks great![​IMG]

    I’ll post an update later down the road after a few thousand rounds and draws. That should give a good indication. Based on others I’ve done, I assume it will hold up well!:)

    **your all black version looks great!

    Very nice look indeed. A black sharpie will take care of that trigger scratch.;)
