    Question abt pt845 slide finish

    I have a pt845 with the black slide. Does anybody know what the type of finish it is?

    Not sure if it is regular blued. Its more black and wonder if it could be salt bathed.

    Thanks.

    Joe

    It's probably the equivalent to spray enamel if it has a glossiness to it.

    It's called a "tenifer" finish, which, by description, is a salt bath ferritic nitrocarburizing.

    Exactly! Most Taurus Semi-Auto's, except the PT1911 which may be Blued, are finished in Black Tennifer.
