How about some bling? (The Cartel Gun)

I received my 6 inch USPSA Limited gun frame and slide back from Calico Coatings this week.  The coating is TiCN (titanium carbonitride) that was laid down on the gun through a PVD process after the parts were prepared using Calico's super micro finishing. The coating is similar to TiN that you see on some of the high end competition shotgun bolts in the 3 gun world, but that is only available in gold, so it was not an option for this build.  

The TiCN coating is very hard and extremely slick. So slick that my front sight that I had to hammer out of the gun slid right back in with only finger pressure, and when I applied locktite to the slide to hold it in place, the liquid beaded up and tried to run down the side of the slide. 

The pictures pretty much say it all. This is not a subdued gun. It is LOUD.  Something that might be found in a drug cartel boss's safe.  It has been dubbed The Cartel Gun.

  1. My friend likes semi-automatics; I feel the same about revolvers. Everyone’s preference is different. As long as you know your gun, why you chose it, and it fits your needs, then it's the best gun for you.
