SIG Custom shop screw up?

Sent a WG-P6 for re-blueing, it was returned with damage to the finish because someone failed to know the difference between carbon or steel slides.

Sent it back and it was return , they stated nothing wrong w the finish? After a long fight and being a Armorer for SIG, the P6 was returned for a 3rd time,

Now it was returned and done correctly with a good finish....has anyone else had trouble w sig CS when sending your SIG in?

Photos of damage below.

What is wrong ? The picture doesn't show anything.

I had Sig do my 220-9mm as the old slide finish was well worn.
The Sig blue is very dark in color. Surprised me when I first saw it.
Grew on me quickly and it is a beautiful finish, I am perfectly happy with.

Sig also repainted my bar dot sights to match perfectly. Replaced the extractor and firing pin, just because I asked them if the extractor looked good.
All no extra charge.

I have had the custom shop do two warranties and 3 electives, and they went above and beyond each time.
I can't sing their praises enough.
I know they can tell a carbon from stainless. They aren't even close in design.
Blue works on either steel, so it wouldn't matter anyway.

Blueing is process of "controlled oxidation" and Stainless Steel can not be blued.
If you were talking NITRON then yes, it works on both.

I stand corrected, and typed faster than I thought.
