    Hi all,

    I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that we are in the process of having some of our stainless steel parts DLC coated (Diamond Like Carbon). For those of you not familiar with this process, it offers a very durable, hard, very dark-gray (not a true black) coating that not only resists scratches and wear, but offers a near-black color. Here are some samples we recently had done:

    Soon you will be able to run in stealth mode and use a P-7 clip on dark slacks! We are going to do P-7 clips (single and 2-packs), the entire Isotope (tritium vial mounts) product line, as well as a small batch of stainless steel glow fobs. An announcement will be made once they are available.

    Comments/feedback welcome!

    That is awesome! I experimented with painting a p-7. Was not very successful. I like this idea very much.

    Thank you. Yes, the minimum run was the gating factor, but now we have enough product and sales to justify it.

    Definitely not triodes, I wouldn't want to cover up that nice titanium!
    SST Pixels... Maybe but not on this run

    Great idea, TEC! I like the look of DLC coating, but don't have personal experience with it.

    I don't know that I've ever seen pictures of worn DLC coating.

    They are at the coating house today, but the coating chamber is typically very busy. I think worst case they will ship by the 19th. Hoping sooner

    I could definitely agree with this statement!

    I have no idea what this part means...

    Hmm... I've been wanting another P-7... now there's even more reason to get another. They look really awesome with the DLC coating.
