I got the email too. This really sucks. I had several builds planned out that won’t be happening now as a result. 

I reached out to Todd @ FFT and the screen caps are his response to how, or how not, this Wright Armory change would affect his operation since he is a quasi manufacturer

 

See caps...

So how is it not going to affect him having access to the coatings if it’s being discontinued by the manufacturer...?

Only end user, retail market seems to be affected. 

Manufacturers can still send batches for coating is my understanding. Wright probably wants to focus on commercial and not the ticky tack onesie-twosie piece projects

What’s the cost to have the M4 completely NP3 coated?

Expect 1200-1600 depending on accessories. Example, if you have a titanium magazine tube, that can't be plated, so the cost is lower.

 

I built a forum member a high end AR15 that was completely NP3 plated. He took it to a 3 Gun competition and let some of the guys try it out. They stated it shot better than their race guns and it wasn't set up to be a race gun. It had a B.E. Meyers 249 flash suppressor instead of a comp. You could clean it with a paper towel except the bore.

Meh……CeraCoat for me

CeraCoat is good, but not NP3 good. It is however fine in most instances. My pocket CCW pistol has been CeraCoat'd twice now. It gets a lot of sweat and salts on it during the hot summer months. I would bet big money that if I would have had it NP3, that it would outlast me.

That looks really sweet.

 

How does the NP3 hold up or allow adherence- say for example you had to go full Charlie Whiskey 2 mode and rattle can the exterior

The plater states that paint won't adhere well to the NP3. My Cerakoter ends up roughing up the NP3 with a bead blaster to get it adhere.
