This is a teflon coating in gun metal gray, it cost me $150+tax.
And YES, they do have some good food there.
As for being rough with it, I don't pamper this gun and is almost my truck gun. BUT, if you are refering to the scope, that is a scope that I picked up out of a local pawn/gun shop had a fire. The scope had some kinda rubberize coating that must have gotten a little too hot, did my best to clean it off and not make it worst than it was.
