Check out this thread HK USP Stainless Steel SlidesHi everyone
Just thinking about picking up the KG USP 40 and wanted to share the condition of the slide.
Is it me or does it look a little oxidized?
I don’t want to change the matt finish but I would like to clean up the look
Thats not a Cerakote finish far as I can see from your pictures, the serial numbers/date code are clearly visible...I don't recall the Stainless slide being quiet that dark tho...many variations did show up..very interesting example you have...it looks very clean.Thanks for everyone’s feed back I greatly appreciate the knowledge.
Unfortunately looks like this KG was either cerakote a or Duracoated, some where in its life time.
I’m going to use ultrasonic cleaner with purple stuff but I think this gun is finished as a collectors gun.

Say what?The slide release is refinished. On a stainless gun, it should be blued. Happy shooting.
I think you are talking to the wrong person...The topic creator's slide release is normal black as is standard on factory stainless USP and USPc as you mentioned and like on yours (beautiful example btw!). You quoted someone who said he had his USP hard chromed, that's why the slide release in the one you quoted is silver.View attachment 305251 View attachment 305252 Look at the slide release. The stainless guns were not coated and the slide releases are blued steel, not what you have. I've also attached a pic of one of my slides.
