I sure like what I've read about this finish. Has anyone tried it? And what are your thoughts? Thanks.

I'd like to see how NP3+, Fail Zero and hardchrome compare.

Per Robar, electroless nickle is more wear resistant than hard chrome (doesn't flake, peel, etc). NP3 is a combination of electoless nickle and Teflon molecules. Robar now has NP3 Plus which they say is even better. I think the combination of Roguard (black finish) on the outside and NP3 Plus on the inside is the way to go for my stainless Milspec. The kicker is that I need to make sure all my wishlist additions are completed prior to finishing. At $400 for the entire gun, inside and out, I only want to have it done once. http://www.robarguns.com/precision_coatings.htm

I peeked at the site.. it is not something that they offer in the special finishes section..http://www.cylinder-slide.com/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=catshow&ref=CP135

I think that they only offer it on the Trident pistol.. http://www.cylinder-slide.com/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=FZ078

however I did not call or email so i could be wrong about this

I've read some great stuff about it, but I'll always be a die hard hardchrome dude. :cool: Been thinking about seeing if I can get all my holsters hardchromed too. :rofl:

I'm very interested in this coating, too. Wonder how much it would run to get it done to a stainless 1911?

I have 2 Fail Zero bolt carrier groups in AR-15s. In that application, the FZ treatment is awesome. With respect to BCGs, the Fail Zero is a LOT more slippery than hard chrome, and is a piece of cake to clean. The DOD ran a FZ BCG for something totally unbelievable. 41,000 rounds or something astronomical with no lube at all, with no malfunctions. I don't have any experience with 1911 treatments though, so I can't speak with any authority. But I won't use anything else in my ARs.
Good luck,
Brad

Sounds like a ringing endorsement. An AR with 41,000 rounds, unlubed? :wow:

That's why I wanted a Fusion. That one dude's endorsement that it shoots 1" groups offhand at 1,000 yards. :whistling:

I think you have to be a super tactical ninja commando to have the skill to actually make the shot but it sounds like fusion guns are built to such exacting specs it should be able to handle it. :rofl::rofl:
