I know the slide is stainless. Their website states they are either matte silver or matte black. Why matte silver instead of matte stainless? The site does not mention what treatment may be on the slide. Does anyone know why the "silver" finish or what it is? I have one on layaway and am curious.

If countryboy is still around, he interned in the finishing department at FN and knew. I can't remember what he said it was, but there is a finish on the slide even though it is stainless.

If there is a treatment on the naked stainless slide, I can't feel or see it. I think they're just referring to the "silver" color of the non painted version.
