I also have a lightweight SA micro with the plain silver finished frame that matches the stainless slide. The frame's silver finish was wearing through and showing black in numerous places. I just sent the pistol back to the SA custom shop to have the frontstrap checkered and then to have it refinished with "Black-T". I've had 5 or 6 other pistols finished with "Black-T" and I have been very pleased with the satin black finish that has held up extremely well. Biggest problem with Birdsong's (Black-T) is they are usually backlogged with Gov't contracts and it can take a while to get done, but I'm willing to wait for a superior finish that will last.
