I have a P220 .45acp that was born in the early 90s. the frame finish in the slide rails at the rear are almost white. I would like to keep shooting it but don't want to damage it. What would be the best finish to use. I was thinking about EXO from Failsafe on their web site they say if the slide is tight it may cause a problem. I can only think this would help this one as I only know it has had thousands and thousands of rounds through it. and I got it used.

I have a Diamondback DB380 with an EXO coating on the slide and it is good stuff. Too bad SIG only refinishes slides. (no frames) I know some of the other guys have had some work done on their frames, hopefully they will chime in for you.

I would go with CCR and pick one of their finishes.

CCR has a "house black" which looks identical to the SIG's original finish. I would go with them also.

Customized Creationz seems to do some nice work.

Take a look at CCR's Cerahide in black. My P228 looks great and the coating on the internals has made the DA pull a lot smoother.

I have a P6 there right now getting a makeover also. I highly recommend CCR.

Look here

He does excellent work and is priced good! Also has a FFL to accept any firearms from out of state. Tell him I sent ya and he will give you a good deal. I use him for my personal guns and we use him for customer guns as well. His name is Devin.
