How deep is the CZ-USA marking on a polycoat CZ 75 frame?
« on: November 29, 2017, 03:00:52 PM »
Does anyone know if the "CZ-USA, KANSAS CITY, KS" marking on the right side of the frame on a polycoat CZ 75 penetrates into the underlying metal? I know the serial numbers are stamped into the metal, but this marking looks different. I'm wondering if removing the polycoat for refinishing also removes this marking.

That marking will likely not survive the refinishing process but unless it really concerns you I wouldn't care about it. From looking at all my CZ's it appears to be lightly laser etched and pretty thin as well.

The marking gets stripped off. I had my lower cerakoted and here is where the Kansas City markings used to be:

CZ 75 P-01
S&W 586-8
S&W M&P 15

It will disappear for sure as shown in pic above. I cerokoted a frame also and it's gone

On my SP-01 compact, which I had black nitrided, those markings are still there, but then again, black nitriding isn't a paint-like coating either..

Shallow enough that it did not even survive the prep and process for hard chroming. My refinisher (Accurate Plating & Weaponry) had to re-etch it. They did a great job though.
