DRASTIC INVENTORY REDUCTION GOING ON FELLAS!!!
ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES, SORRY!!!

I am going to drastically reduce my collection for multiple reasons:
* I am just not finding time to get to the range much anymore
* I have other expensive and time consuming hobbies (Jeeps and camping)
* I am giving marriage another go so I have a wedding in October to plan for!

OK, I'm not trying to be rude but I want to be clear to save us all time - this is not a firesale, I do not "HAVE TO" sell any of these, it's just a matter of reducing how much money I have sitting in the gun safe. All prices are firm unless I decide to reduce them down the road. :usa:

For sale in this thread:
Nighthawk Custom Tallon II 45 acp. It is a 2006 build, but was sent to Nighthawk to be refinished in "Battleworn Bronze". Some will love it, some will hate it - I kinda like it because it's different. I have no idea of the round count, but I will say the same thing that I said about my Ed Brown Custom Shop 9mm - This thing is a tac driver and I seriously won't mind if I don't sell it!!!

Price on this one is $2000 shipped FIRM
I accept payment from Zelle, Venmo, Postal money order, Certified bank check, or PayPal f&f

Ya, I hear you...I am wondering if that finish could just be "soft" bead blasted off...

Maybe @steveowens @Integrity Arms could tell us?
I would venture to say that this finish more than likely was done over the hard chrome, but would have to verify that with Nighthawk. I have a source there that would let me know for sure..

If that were the case Steve, do you think you could get this back to it's hard chrome goodness?!?

It really depends on how the outer finish was applied. And it could very well be the hard chrome was stripped first. The thing that makes me think it wasn't is that hard chrome parts have to be prepped under size prior to being hard chromed. And to remove and apply another finish doesn't seem plausible.. But, let me see if I can get that info.. I was under the impression that this battle worn finish could be a PVD process applied over the hard Chrome in which case it could be removed.

Oh, I know! I'm wracking my brain trying to mame this work...being able to strip it to hard chrome would just make it all the sweeter!
