It's that time of year. Wet, cold, muddy outside.
This week, I stayed inside and fully stripped and cleaned guns. All the guns.

Just about all of the gun parts were plastered with cotton fibers from Q-Tips, patches, and rag T shirt when I was "done". Rough parts. Rough machining, Gaps between parts. Not quite fitted parts that developed burrs. All of it tearing off bits of cleaning gear, forcing me to pick the fluff out.
I admit that some of these firearms are low end, working man's guns, you might say some of mine are "cheap" guns. Surprisingly, some of those cheapies have better finished internal parts than other far more expensive ones I have.

By a wide margin, the best made firearms I own are the HKs. Every single HK part, visible or hidden away inside, is just plain perfect.

The HK guns I have are surfaced like glass. Every surface on every part. Every groove and recess, nook and cranny is machined smoothly. Run cotton over them, and all the cotton stays on the stick or in the fabric. Wipe off the surface and there's no grooves or chatter marks or any defect holding hostage the solvent or oil I wanted off.
Was a good reminder of why I'm pretty proud of the Hks.
When cleaning the herd, I always do the HKs last. Leaves me in a better mood.

The roughest finish I have see is on a CZ. It's the only CZ I have.
HK definitely shows quality inside and out. They claim a premium for a reason.

Agree, finish on my CZ75B (2018) seems to be extremely durable
