I just bought a used Kimber Pro Raptor II that has the original finish. The gun was a duty carry weapon, and has holster wear, but no major blemishes or pitting. What type of finish would you recommend for a duty weapon? I called Kimber, and they offer a KimPro finish that is supposed to be more durable than the original finish.

you just can't see the wear in the photo's.
the DW is only a few months old.
The EMP has the most carry time, but you can't see the holster wear on teh SS slide.
i don't carry the 5" guns.

here's a shot of the Professional where you can see the wear.

there's even holster wear on my SS guns
