    So I actually have 2 TM HK45, originally was going to paint the lower of one FDE but now that the new FDE Tactical TM version is coming I've decided I want to do something a bit different with my spare HK45 and get a metal slide.

    From my understanding my options include Detonator, Shooters Design, RA Tech, and Creation. Am I missing one or does anyone have experience with them?

    Ideally I would like one with a less shiny finish, I don't know if this is a problem with any of the mentioned slides but the KWA HK45 is way too glossy for my taste. Also I would like a extended barrel for a thread cap at the end.

    Budget wise I'm pretty open and willing to go quite deep in. The steel RA Tech slide looks intriguing but I have had mixed experiences with RA Tech steel kits.

    I've got the shooter's design slide and outer barrel on my TM hk45. Definitely not shiny like the stock slide, it a matte dark greyish finish. Trademarks are sharp, though the outer barrel tends to lose its finish rather quickly. The install isn't hard, provided you've done a couple before. Overall,I think the SD option isn't a bad buy, esp since you said you're going to get a threaded outer anyway.
    I just wish there was an aftermarket frame option as well, as I think the stock TM frame also seems rather shiny.
