Winchester SX3 question

Hello everyone. I was at my LGS and was checking out an SX3 out of pure curiosity (interested for the future) and this one had a different but cool finish. It wasn't shiny. It was like a matte gray? What is that? Is it durable? These are just questions out of curiosity. Thanks in advance

It's Winchester's proprietary coating--not sure what they call it but it should be durable.

It is called Perma-Coat and yes it is very durable. But Winchester has started to discontinue this finish and the Dura-Touch finish as well. So if you're in the market, I suggest buying it soon.
