So is it Nitron or PVD? Or is "Black Nitron" just a color and not an actual finish?
From the Modern Warriors web page:
Sig Sauer P226 Black Legion – DA/SA
In October of 2015, Sig Sauer announced the release of enhanced pistols based on their P226 and P229 families called the Legion Series. These upgraded pistols include many features widely requested by professionals and avid shooters. SIG worked with GrayGuns, Inc. to develop this pistol. Bruce Gray has been one of the most visible individuals in P320 enhancements with a number of packages offered to improve accuracy and trigger performance.The Black Nitron PVD finish was originally manufactured by Sig Sauer for Law Enforcement purchase only. Now these items are available on the commercial market. These were a limited run and once they are gone, they are gone! Sig Sauer is no longer producing the Black Legion finish.
The Legion series has the following enhancements:
Black Nitron PVD finish on slide and frame Front cocking serrations (Elite style slide) Solid steel guide rod GrayGuns Inc. Intermediate Adjustable Trigger Checkered trigger guard underside Enhanced polished action with short reset trigger X5 undercut on the frame More aggressive front strap checkering Sig X-Ray night sights which offer high visibility during day and night Reduced profile decocker and slide levers Reduced Elite beavertail Custom checkered G-10 grips Ships with 3 anti-friction magazines

I picked up a NIB black P226 Legion RX back in mid April. It was old stock, so I got a pretty nice deal on it. Shop owner remarked that he liked this one better than other Legions with its black finish. I didn’t know enough about them to notice the difference until I bought it and started to research things. Sure enough, I love the black finish. It matches my MK 25 perfectly. The box label on the Legion includes “LE”, so I’m assuming that it was originally made for that sector.
