    My HK and XD with "nitride" or "Extreme Duty" finishes shows significant wear just from carrying beneath clothing without even firing it. Is this normal or a defect? Is there a possible warranty claim here?

    Good clear pictures would show the extent of wear and aid us in answering. Ask Dillinger about commercial aftermarket coatings that's known to be tougher than any factory finish.

    My XD nitride finish did not wear all that well either. I found regular doses of Tetra gunspray to make all the difference.FTI, Inc. - Tetra Gun Care Products Spray it on, wipe it down and after a couple treatments the XD looked better than new and was much less sensitive to scratching and holster/clothing wear marks.
