Email just received from Wright Armory
« on: October 04, 2021, 06:56:46 pm »
I just received the following email from the folks at Wright Armory in Mesa...

Dear Wright Armory Customers,

We regret to inform you that the NP3 and NP3+ finishes we know and love will be discontinued to the retail market. All current orders will be fulfilled as outlined below.

We were informed Friday afternoon by Coating Technologies (the owners and applicators of the NP3 family of finishes) that the retail component of the NP3 Firearm Finishing Program will be discontinued.
No new NP3 orders will be accepted after the close of business on Friday 10/15/2021.

Key Info:
•   All orders received prior to the close of business on Friday 10/15/2021 will be processed and completed.
•   All existing orders currently in the shop will be processed for NP3 or NP3+ and returned home when completed.
•   If your order is already here, this change will not affect how your order is processed.
•   If you have ever wanted to have NP3 or NP3+ on your firearms and components act now, this is the last time you will be able to send pieces in to be coated.

The NP3 family of finishes will still be available to manufacturers that choose to utilize the finish from the factory, but unfortunately end users / individual customers will no longer be able to send in a gun or parts of a gun to have it coated with NP3+.
Moving forward we will begin vetting new performance finishes with the intent of finding a suitable replacement for NP3+. When we have found a performance finish that fits this build, we will make it available to you.

We do not take lightly the trust you have placed in us to provide you with the highest quality gunsmithing and performance finishes available and we will do our best to ensure that this trust is well placed.


Brian Wright

    Tough market the last year or so.  Lots of decisions had to be made that people were hoping not to.  It was/is a good product and will be missed by folks who need that kind of protection.
