Does Sig have some of the WORST blueing?

I've seen them used and new in the case and the finish suuuuuure does wear off quick! Not that it affects reliability, but if in gonna plunk down >$800 I'd be PISSED if it was worn off in a couple of months.... HK's seem to have that same issue, especially on the barrel hoods. They are completely a different color oftentimes...

I work p/t in a shop as the gun tech, I have sent a few Sigs back lately for warranty work for various reasons. The last one was a Sig 1911 c3, 3 months old and the stainless slide is pitting.

Customer sure wasn't happy with them.

Their nitron finish wan't the nicest finish I have seem. But any finish short of poly coat the gun will not hold up for serious user or holstering wear.

I have an older P229 I carry for work and it has a lot of holster wear. The blue or black (the slide is slainless steel) finish of the gun is very poor. Everything else about the gun has been excellent. The gun is about 20 years old and it has been flawless in the ten years I have carried and shot it.

I would post pictures, but the gun is at work. Sorry.

Except run rings around it in accuracy among many other things. I own both brands, and I really like both. However, there are some things the Sig can do better.

Hi point is not considered a premium gun.

Mechanically the Sig is no more accurate than a Glock. But if that's what you need to say to justify the 50%-75% premium that's fine. You just ain't fooling me.

Let's see.

Glock:

Lighter
More reliable
More capacity
Longer barrel per class
Longer sight radius per class
Simpler (1 tool to take apart)
Better finish
More compact
More aftermarket accessories
As or more accurate
More sold than HK and Sigs combined
$250-$600 less for the Glock
Etc.

I owned both Sigs and HK's. I thought there was some kind of advantage since I paid huge premiums to my Glocks. It took me a while but I realized the Glock is a superior engineered pistol. I since have sold off the Sigs and HK's. I did however keep 1 Beretta.

A Glock is also not considered a premium gun. They are both manufactured as inexpensively as possible, Glock just charges a more premium price.
