It looks good but it's not my cup of tea.

I really like the color flip on the slide and frame. The red looks pretty good but I think I would have liked it even more if you had kept all the red parts silver.

I noticed that the red parts are the ones most often touched, exposing them to salt, dirt, sweat and debris from assembling some part.

Is the red cerakote a more durable finish? If it is (rather than just being decorative) it would be a coating better for abuse.

I have no idea. I know pvd coating is more durable which is why I had the barrel done in that.
