Depends on how much you want to spend and what kind of finish you're looking for.
Hard Chrome, Ionbond, or Melonite are the best treatments out there in terms of wear. They are expensive though.
Black T is "OK" IMHO but notably one of the softer finishes and overpriced considering you can find someone to Cerakote a gun for around $150. FWIW I've owned guns with both types of finishes.
Robar's NP3 is also an excellent option, not to be confused with Roguard.
