AmBack grampers! Yes, even you can sit in that duck-blind or tree-stand all day! Into water sports? :twisted: You can go for those long boat rides too. Our Amback gramper 'Regulars" are garunteed to hold up for 4 - 6 hours depending on coffee intake. the Deluxe "RearGurard" version comes with a reusable "rogaurd" outer and a soft disposable inner.

Stock up for Christmas and don't forget the battery packs for those cold days of Winter! 8)
Both Roguard and NP3 are trademarks of Coating Technologies and/or Robar.
NP3 is a patented process and Robar has a license to use it (I'm not sure whether that is exclusive or not). It is a teflon/nickel electroplating process. Roguard is a spray and bake process. Robar has a sizeable following of gunsmiths who send stuff there (Phoenix) so I'm sure they can advertise the name of the process.
Coating technologies is an FAA certified facility and does coatings on aircraft engine parts and other components. Actually I think that is a bigger business than guns by a longshot.
I've got a couple of handguns with Roguard or two tone Roguard/NP3 finishes and they are incredibly durable. My #1 carry gun is a lightweight Commander with NP3 on the alloy frame and Roguard on the slide. It is close to 10 years old and shows only the faintest wear.
Thanks for all the info. I looked back over a couple websites and it was Cylinder and slide that advertised Roguard and NP3. I like a nice finish but I hate having to wipe off finger prints and smudges every time I look at the gun. I'm also a big fan of two-tone looks.
It looks like Robar may just be the way to go. They have a beautiful Hi power on their site but I could do without the gold trigger, etc.
A while back ago I sent a FIE TZ-75 for the complete NP3 treatment. It did make a vast improvement on the trigger pull. My only complaint with NP3 is when you have it on the outside of the slide it makes the darn thing slippery as hell.
Robbie did a Kahr K40 for me not long ago with Roguard frame and slide and NP3 internals and external controls.....the NP3 made a nice slick trigger even slicker. The Roguard on slide and frame seems to be very tough and shows no real holster wear at this time. A bonus for me....Robbie's just down the road from where I work, so no shipping involved!
Anyone else miss old school guns smiths? The kind who were trained machinist, did in house bluing, parkerizing, stock making, barrel lathing, and custom parts. Here in Kentucky we had one named Archie Stahl. He did it all in house. He always stamped his works "A. STAHL" on the left side of the...
Stimulating the economy for Joe and relieving my arthritis at the same time I bought a S&W M&P 389 Shield EZ.

I'm still working with it and just got new "No Line" Tri-focals. Age is working on me.
I think at least one magazine is giving me "The Finger"...
I was at the local gun store I haunt where I saw a recently trade-in pistol. It was a Kimber with a lot of custom work done on it. The thing that interested me was that it came with a box of Triton .45 Super. I'd never even heard of such a caliber before and the good folks who work at Albany...
