Black Onyx Ultra 45

If this was already brought up I missed it. My question is the finish on the Black Onyx 45 and the Blue in 45. Any experience with the finish and how it would hold up or is it just for show and not EDC? I'm captured by the beauty of these and ten years ago I'd of said they are pimp guns.

Can't help you with your question about the finish since I don't own one. But if you are looking for one, my favorite LGS has them.

I have seen one in person and they show lots of finger prints and stuff. I don't see anyway possible that a glossy finish like that could hold up to EDC. I think a regular black or stainless gun is the best for EDC. And then you shouldn't worry if it gets wear and tear, because if you carry it everyday it will, Its called character. LOL

I have three, 2 Sapphires and 1 Black, it is not an Onyx it is a Gold Combat LE but I think the PVD finish is the same. I am such a Pimp, they call me "P Sharp Puff Daddy A" but I don't use those for pimp duty.
I have owned the Sapphires the longest, none have ever been in a holster. They have all been fired a good bit never abused and always handled and cared for like a new born baby. None are showing wear except when disassembled in normal wear places.
How long will the finish hold up? I have no clue.
I guess we will need to hear from someone who has owned a Sapphire longer than me and used it for EDC. Otherwise I guess I will have to answer this question in about a decade.

2Sharp maybe a couple more pictures pls of the Gold Combat, that is an exceptional firearm. Also how much trouble do you have seating an eight round magazine in with one in the chamber? And thanks Steve, I have to wait a little till I knock over another convenience store before buying but that Black Onyx really caught my eye.

So far none of the pics I have taken of my GC even some with my Nikon don't really do it justice. The best pic I have ever seen of the Gold Combat LE was one I found online and I will post it for you. Never had a problem seating a magazine cause I do it old school, slap 'em home like I am slapping your momma. I bought it off GUNBROKER for less than MSRP, New but it was not cheap. It is the most accurate pistol that I own.
