Breaktop barrel lengths: I believe we’re still on track to begin delivery of the 2.5” models in early April and will then work on the 4” models.
I believe that the polished/blued and case hardened guns are the highlight of our product line and are an extraordinary value, considering the additional time and effort required for their manufacture. Because we use different materials for these (carbon steel), I don’t expect to offer these finishes on other models.
I’ll admit that I don’t have much enthusiasm for the challenge coin idea.
The Guardian accessories and custom shop options are on the website https://northamericanarms.com/accessories/custom-shop/. I don’t anticipate any new additions.
Our coating vendor is Richter Precision http://www.richterprecision.com/. Both coatings are done by Physical Vapor Deposition and while they are very durable (the vendor quotes Micro-Harness > 80 Rc), they canbe scarred. As for all firearms, they should be handled “thoughtfully”.
Something super secret to raise your eyebrows? Not from me!
