Woo-hoo! New pics on Suzutomo’s Facebook page this morning. The 416 lowers are back from the hard anodising process and are ready to be Cerakoted and marked.
The latter processes are something SGT does in-house, so my guess is it can’t be long until pre-order customers get EMS shipping notices.
Readers may ask why these receivers are hard anodised then Cerakoted. As I understand it, hard anodising hardens the surface of the aluminium and makes it less susceptible to scratches. This forms a solid foundation for the Cerakote. A blend of Cerakote is used, which best mimics the finish of H&K’s original.
This product has been a labour of love for Tosh of SGT. Even so, I bet he’ll be glad to see the back of it and to move onto something new.
Hellbreaker lower, anyone?
