Hi all,

I have been thinking of buying a Desert Eagle (still between a 50ae and 44 mag; will prob get conversion for both). Am really inclined to ordering the Tungsten Gold one; you know because of the cool factor and all ;)

But my question is: Is the gold paint actually resistant, or maybe will end up with paint crumbling which exposes the metal underneath?
Anyone has knowledge of the subject please?

First it's not paint, it's probably a plated finish. What do you want it to be resistant of? Normal wear and tear or molten lava? perhaps something in the middle? All gun finishes will wear but often times will outlast the owner if properly taken care of.

That's correct. It's a plating and it will wear with use, like any plating.

Welcome to the club. One of these days, I'll buy a DE .50AE but it will probably be black.
