    G27 Back from Robar

    I just picked up my G27 from Robar. I decided to try the NP3plus mainly just to have a unique gun. Had the grip reduction/ high grip modification/finger bumps removed and XS Big Dot added. Shoots great, more controllable now that I can get a FULL grip on it, Big Dot is FAST. The very first shot at 7 yds removed the X from the bullseye. And as of now, the hype about NP3plus appears justified. All powder residue wiped off with a dry cloth. For my tastes, I love it.

    BTW, there appears to be a site problem and not all of my pics would upload.

    Looks good, does NP3 come in different shades or is that it? And could you possibly take a close up of the finish?

    Sounds like you've got a great gun!

    Note that his gun has the new NP3 Plus, which is a recent addition. Robar also still does the original NP3 too.

    NP3 Plus is supposed to have even better corrosion resistance. But it costs $26 more to have done on a polymer gun like a Glock.

    That is really great news to hear. I have both of my Walther PPS pistols in at Robar now, waiting for them to get NP3 Plus.

    I will absolutely love it if it makes cleaning that much easier.

    Alas, they quoted me 6 to 7 weeks for the turnaround. May I ask how long you had to wait for your gun?

    7 1/2 weeks. It really was worth it.

    I had closeups to add but the attachment manager seems to be having problems. I just tried again but no go. Will try again later or tomorrow.

    Thanks. I agree that it will be well worth the wait. NP3 Plus may indeed be the ultimate finish to have on a defensive carry gun.

    I've got the Big Dot sights on a pistol and like them.
    I see your 38 has a Hip Grip and Tyler T Grip; I've got the same accessories on my 38 plus a piece of bicycle tube for added grip, and it's Mag-Na-Ported.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    One wonders why... they don't put it on the polymer.

    I think you should cover up the Glock serial numbers in picture #2, just to be safe.

    I apologize, as I should have been more clear.

    To get a polymer gun treated with the original NP3 costs $26 less than treating a polymer gun with the newer NP3 Plus. The new NP3 Plus treatment is more expensive.

    Anyway, that is what I was trying to say.

    Looks fantastic! I almost sent my stainless snub in for that treatment but I went a different route. Still, I may well give it a try if my current project doesn't pan out.
