  1. Crazy stuff. Thanks for the info. I like their mounts just not a fan of the Trijicon RMR. However, the SRO has the same screw alignment as the RMR. The down side is the SRO is not nearly as tough. I don’t know if it would stand up to the recoil.
  2. Not to boss hog in on the OP’s thread but I’d like to buy a Sync mount for the Ainpoint Micro T-1 etc. I’m assuming Scalarworks discontinued them. I can’t seem to find one.
  3. Does anyone know how the CC mag tube in “muted” matches up to the NP3 finish? They say it’s pretty close but I haven’t heard from anyone who actually has seen or owns one.
  4. Thanks SD. It seems my H2O dream is just getting too difficult to chase. I may have to go the route of Midnight or Burnt Bronze Cerakote.
  5. SD, does Wright Armory disassemble like Robar use to? Or does everything have to be broken down? I know you bust everything down, I’m just wondering what’s their method of operation. I know they say Ti can’t be plated but I’m wondering if they would do a mag tube and simply not warranty the finish?
  6. What QD are you running in the stock?
  7. I had a local shop do it for me. They are more of a 1911 custom place but they know what they are doing. I went way conservative compared to most. If you saw it you would probably think it wasn’t opened up enough. While this would be true to most I didn’t want to go too aggressive. I’m not a three gunner, just wanted to make reloading a little easier and efficient. At the same time I wanted to retain the tactical integrity without making it too sporting like. I hate throwing out the word “tactical” but I think it applies here. I messed around with it a little bit and was able to dual load a couple times. I’m sure with some practice and getting use to it I could be more proficient. Perhaps quad loads in the future but like I say it’s a modest opening. Overall I’m happy with it but I wish they rounded it off more where the mag tube begins and the follower lies.
  8. No worries. It was a good lead. It’s not your fault. Thanks for bringing it up as a possibility.
  9. I’d like to be first on the list. Lol My loading port job has been completed so I’m ready.
  10. I hate to laugh but it’s not at your situation. Todd from FFT just posted a new charging handle video on YouTube yesterday. He went on and on about how the steel and ti handles will both serve you for an entire lifetime. He further continued to say that the ti handles might get some dings but they will never fall out. Too crazy. Unless you didn’t have it fully inserted but I would guess that you know what you’re doing. Sorry to hear about your handle. Hopefully, he’ll take care of you.
  11. It looks like WMD offers a Nickel Teflon coating. I don’t know if they would have the same apprehension. SD had them do one of his M4’s in Nickel Boron. If I remember correctly he wasn’t warm and fuzzy about it. Although this may have been more in relation to the Nickel Boron itself. (Tolerance stacking from the plating etc)
  12. I asked about sending it in disassembled and they said, "We would rather not work on it."
  13. Their price for “complete shotgun” is $525 on the the website.
  14. I’m not sure. Unless they are referring to the recoil tube or rear sight? I’m confused and disappointed.
  15. I got excited when I saw your post so I contacted them to ask if they can take the M4 apart or if I need to break it down before sending. This was their response: “ You cannot make a Benelli M4 an H2O model after it has been assembled. There are steel parts staked into place in the aluminum receiver and you cannot mix steel and aluminum in the plating tank.” Makes one wonder why Robar could do it but they can’t?
  16. When they say “distributor” of our finishes I assume that means if you have a business you can get licensed to apply these process for customers?
  17. Does anyone have side by side photos of the before bolt and the redesigned version?
  18. Good to know. Maybe I’ll try e mailing them. I sent my correspondence through their “quote” feature on the website. Perhaps that is for more commercial sized orders. Somebody probably read it and laughed.
  19. I reached out to Nutmeg 5 days ago. So, far no response.
  20. Here is a 1911 done in Slick Shot that I found. The guy that had it done said that he has firearms done in NP3 as well. It's his opinion that it's little more gray and NP3 is a little more silver. However, he feels that they are both similar in durability and lubricity.
  21. Yeah, through my searching I stumbled on to Nutmeg. They are local so they could be real convenient for drop offs if that Slick Shot proves to be legit. I believe they apply it in a process similar to NP3. It also looks like they bake it which puzzles me a little.
  22. I didn't want to keep hijacking SD's thread. While digging around I found a couple of interesting alternatives to look at. So far my research is limited but I thought I would share. Disclaimer: I don't work for these places, know anything about them or have any clue per say. They just looked pretty interesting. This company has so far caught my attention the most: http://nutmegchrome.com/page/slik-shot-electroless-plated-coating Here is another that might have some potential. Although their fancy space age plating can't be done on aluminum apparently. http://www.ccrrefinishing.com/pricing.html I throw this one in for two reasons even though they are Cerakote peeps. https://www.libertycoatings.com/cerakote-elite-series/ 1.) I have reason to believe that they do Cerakote for Benelli. ( I can neither confirm or deny this.) The owner was very quick to respond to my inquiry. His semi cryptic reply lead me to believe that this Benelli thing may be true. 2.) Look at their pics on the website. They obviously are doing work for many firearm manufactures. I will note that they don't state that they are Cerakote factory certified. I'm not sure if this should be a concern or not..
  23. You would think Robar would make mention of the closure on their site. I'm sure people are still shipping in items to be coated/plated.
