Glock nPVD finish and the G48

I’m relatively new to this forum but not new to the shooting sports. I am especially fond of Glocks and place a high value on their reliability and ease of maintenance. Most of my Glocks are Gen 3. Several years ago I purchased a new, first gen G48 with the new at the time nPVD silver finish. This pistol lives its life in my desk drawer at home. As best I can tell, Glock only used this finish for a year or so and then went back to their black finish. I’ve read a few comments that the silver nPVD finish did not wear well, but nothing more than that. I would appreciate some input, both pro and con, on the durability of this finish, please.

To my knowledge, it’s not that it’s wearing off as much as the silver shows marks that you wouldn’t see on a black slide. The 19x also has nPVD and I know guys who are tough on guns that are very pleased with how their 19x finish has held up.
