I have a few questions on the stainless pt92. Is the slide actually stainless steel or does it have some type of finish? Also is the barrel 100% stainless steel or is it plated. I thought i saw an old 92 that had chrome chipping off the top of the barrel. I know these barrels aren't chrome bored. Also,is there any type of finish on the polished aluminum frame or is it bare. I would think bare aluminum would oxidize .

near as i can tell it is just bare aluminum and stainless steal.

i wouldn't worry about aluminum oxidizing, unlike iron which turns into rust aluminum actually creates a hard protective layer that acts like protection, you can always throw some oil on it just in case, i do anyway.

they use bare aluminum in cars all the time.. and they're subjected ot much more extremes then a pistol.

The aluminum frame seems anodized wich makes the surface of aluminum even harder and smoother but i don't know if this process can be done clear instead of colored .

Any one know if these frames are milled,cnc machined, forged, ect?
