It's a bit old post, but I am certain Dave or Steve can answer your question.

I personally don't think it holds up that well on Aluminum myself. The softer substrate is more prone to denting and cracking the finish. This is my take on it, I notice a lot easier wear on Alum Triggers over Anodized.. Ionbond may have a different process, but I'm not real confident on my end..

Kinda what I expected. I have a few DLC triggers and I'm not super impressed with its wear resistance.

While the hard question would be "Which one of these is your LEAST favorite?", the Series 70, between the Valor and the Alchemy, is a touch or two beyond amazing.

Mr. Owens, you do really great stuff and the aesthetic touches like French border(accent line?), slide top serrations and monogrammed recoil plug really does tie it all together. My goodness.

They're more than just a pretty face too.
