Sorry, new cell phone with the annoying "HDR" or whatever picture enhancement it has, although the pic exposure is pretty accurate, it is a DW Titan elite 10mm double stack and it is very, very dark black.  I shall try to post a better pic, however the gun is sooo dark that when I take it out of the holster, the lights dim in the room. ;)

Well I thought it might be a Titan but it was so dark I could not tell for sure. Thought it could have been an accidental posting of the wrong gun....been there, done that, sure was embarrassing at the time.

I am not sure on the finish, it does not specify in the literature.  It is however very dark, I may send it to Birdsong for their coating; they did an excellent job on my sig's.  But probably not for awhile, I need to familiarize myself with it and no reason to change the finish if it is not broke.

I just did some research CZ uses Black Polycoat Finish. It's a baked on paint. 

Zak in this thread has some interesting things to say about Polycoat...

Thank you Sir, interesting information.  The finish seems durable (from looking at it, a very unscientific observation) time will tell.

Upper right corner of the post you want to quote will have a boxed "Quote link. Once you click on that it opens your reply post with the quoted post in a light blue box that leads off with xyz123 said (and you can edit the quote to zero in on the part of the quote you want to reply to). You can include multiple quotes in your reply

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Ah Hah!  I was using an older browser version and it cut off the right side of the posts, I see it know.  Thank you Steve CT.

My newest DW 1911. Its apparently had a lot of work done to it, but I'm not 100% sure on the model, I think its a vigil. It's had a new slide, barrel, grips,  sights and some bushing work that I can tell so far. I'll be hitting the range tomorrow to test it out. 20201003_173118.jpgImage Enlarger
