sig seems to be getting away from the phosphate coated internals.... the last one I bought (late 2018 manufacture date) had even less internal phosphate coated parts than my earlier ones (2013-2014). Locking block isn't phosphate anymore, take down lever isn't, trigger pivot pin is not... not sure if they ever had a phosphate coated trigger bar (none of mine have). some of mine have had phosphate coated grip screws.


They do come with a phosphate coated decocking lever still, so I guess that's something (I prefer the super blue finish on the latest ones, when you can find them in stock).

Yes, SIG has been putting in something they call "Super Blue", whatever that is. It is a smooth finish. I don't know SIG's reason for discontinuing phosphate coated internal parts, but a lot of people who seem to expect a competition smooth action from a production combat gun complained about the gritty trigger caused by the phosphate coating. Well, duh! It's a combat gun built to get a nasty job done in harsh environments, not for bullseye shooting on a range.

Welcome from TN. I just received my M11-A1 this morning. Haven't had time to shoot it yet. But tomorrow is looking good!
