I took it apart, and there under the slide, was a section larger than the size of a quarter that had ZERO coating. Very poor QC. How this one slipped by, I have no idea, but I would never buy that particular gun. Even the sales guy was embarrassed by this.

There are so many posts on the Legion coating problems, but this was a first for me. I wish I had taken a picture of it, but I think I was in shock at how bad it looked.

Dang... Come on Sig, we need and expect better.
What is the name of the LGS?

One at my LGS had one that showed the same "finish-less" area and a drop of oil and a rag made it go away .... YMMV

What everyone else said... those are dry spots. I'm 99% sure that if you oil it, it will go away. The only real "bare" spot is typically inside the mag well / grip area where the pistol was held in the fixture during the finishing process.
Spiritfox and Armymark like this.

You guys a ruining everything! Let the panic run, this is the perfect storm to try to get a deal from an LGS on a poorly finished Legion!

As I said, this is not a handling, scratching or wearing issue, this is a factory issue for sure, and the fact that this passed QC is a bit scary. You can see the large spot on the frame (under where the barrel would be) where the coating is missing completely. If I did not tear down the gun, I never would have noticed this.

LOL just like I said in the other Legion finish thread.....that's a dry spot surrounded by oily spots.

Spread that oil around and it will look the same.

HAHAHAHAHA

Well, that is good to know! To me it looked like a major manufacturing flaw, but now if I see it again on another model that I am interested in, I won't freak out quite so badly.

I did not buy the gun in the picture with it looking like that, plus it is a DA/SA model and I am looking for the SAO model. It would make a great negotiating point with the LGS though, that is for sure to ask for a discount due to the "factory defect"! LOL

Yep, I've seen Nitron with similar spots on the frame (although not as distinct in the blavk) but a little oil can do wonders.
