Does anyone have any pictures to post of a handgun with a Roguard finish? Or of any two-tone guns with hard chrome?

Thanks,

Ed

You might want to let Robbie know that, because he thinks it's "Roguard."
O sweet honey mustard… I'll be spending the rest of the morning writing "It's Roguard and Ravengard… It's Roguard and Ravengard… It's Roguard and Ravengard…."

Mebbe I do need to be fit for a set of Walt's "Grampers!" :oops:

It's Hell getting old isn't it? Just make sure when you get your grampers that they are the "Thunder-Grampers" Adds a whole different meaning to "rear-guard"... or is that rear-gard?

:wink:

it keeps rolling down hill

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.

Available in small and large bore.

Stock up for Christmas and don't forget the battery packs for those cold days of Winter! 8)

I think you'll find it's "Rogard," #1, and, #2, here's a page-in-progress showing a two-tone Rogard/NP3 job.
Dean, fine looking pistol! (I like form following function) Is Rod the Wonder pistol still on active duty? Are the hammer, slide-stop and safety hard chrome?

No, they are NP3, another proprietary Robar finish.
Really? I've seen other places offering NP3 and Roguard. Does that mean they send it off or are they licensing the process?

Thanks,

Ed

I believe that Robar is the only place doing NP3 or Roguard. I suspect those other places are sending stuff to Phoenix.

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 guys

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.

Robbie usually recommends doing internal parts in NP3 and it does look nice although I'm not sure it's totally necessary.

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.

Mac's Tuff-gun finish

Does anyone have any experience with Mac's of AZ and his "tuff-Gun" finish?

Thanks,

Ed

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!
