Very durable. I just sold an XDm in .40 and the finish on it seemed like it was very high quality.

The black is very durable. Don't ask how I know but it involved the slide hitting concrete pretty hard didn't even leave a mark at all
I have both the black and stainless (non M's) my vote goes to the stainless version :)

I believe its melonite and it's pretty durable. I haven't abused it, but I have bumped the slide a few times in the past couple years and it looks still looks good.
