Reverse Two Tones?

For those of you with reverse two tones, how do they hold up? I'm considering a sentinel compact with stainless polished flats and black AT, but wonder if it may get dinged up quicker. Also did you get the whole firearm or just slide? Thanks!

I have a Reverse 2-Tone, AT Black Frame and Stainless Steel Matte Bead Blast Slide. I bought it new in 2016. My sides are not polished. It has held up very well, I'd say it looks good as new. I carried it everyday for about a year, taken it in & out of the holster all the time, no holster wear whatsoever.

If you get polished sides, it will certainly make any dings more noticable.

Dings don't bother me. Means I've actually BEEN shooting it.

I only have one but no issues any different from any other configuration. Mine isn't polished either, it has the bead blast finish on the slide.

I had the polished stainless flats and black anodize on the Kimber Eclipse I sent to them for a RBMW; due to blending the frame to the RBMW, the frame needed a re-finish, and to make the slide look consistent, I had it done as well - frame and slide areas that were black anodize were done in black AT.

I have a couple of them. They hold up very well and look sharp.
