    I coat the end of a bore snake with Corrosion X for the final pass just to make sure.

    I'm not an expert on Glock finishes. I do know that my older Glock slides and barrels are Tenifer, and I believe that to be a different trade name for the melonite process.

    My comment with regard to blued and melonited rifle barrels is more of an observation than an endorsement. Like I said, Balistol seems to work fine with my Glocks but I've never used it on my blued or melonited rifle barrels.

    I got ya. I'm going to try it and see how it likes my nitrocarburized barrel. Thanks for the reply.

    Melonite and Tenifer are trademarked variations of this:

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferr...trocarburizing

    If what I have read is correct, Glock hasn't used the Tenifer process in awhile. If my further reading and observations are correct that change was somewhere at the end of or after Gen 2 frame type production. I *think* the Gen 1 and 2 pistols with the rougher charcoal gray colored slides were Tenifer while the slick/smooth blacker finish was/is what ever variation they switched to post Tenifer(and I am aware the coloration is not the metal treatment itself).

    If that is the case (and for whatever it is worth basing this on a not so large sample size) I don't recall ever seeing an early pistol corrode...even some with the coloration completely worn off. I have seen 3 different Gen 3 frames with the smooth black coloration exhibit pitting with less use than the earlier types. I have also had an early M&P 45 (I think they advertised as Melonite at the time) exhibit pitting similar to the Gen 3 Glocks. Have to say I never saw evidence of corrosion of any kind on or in the barrels of those pistols, slide only.

    I dare to say the this is an area where Froglube does actually work very well. I use it for corrosion protection and that's it. FWIW, Froglube paste and Eezox were a dead heat tie for first followed by FL liquid.
    I also have some Grizzly Grease. Isn't it similar to FrogLube?

    I personally use EEZOX and have found it to be a very good rust preventer. But, hey, if his way gets it done, why change.

    Never even heard of it, but it sure looks like it from the website.
