TiCN COATING WITH EXECUTIVE FINISH begins with a matte/non-reflective finish to the entire slide. We then do a precision surface polish of the right and left sides only. The resultant finish is a glossy sided slide with all serrations, inlets and engraving being a matte finish. As such, the amount of glossy finish will vary and be dependent upon the machining cut you have selected for your slide. The top remains a matte/non-reflective finish to include the slide chamfers if also ordered/cut.
