Well, my TCM is my ccw firearm and it's already showing a good amount of holster wear. The parkerizing is rubbing off on all the corners. I'm not going to get all bent out of shape over a corner of the grip being off. Besides, no one else sees it ;)
I believe my shotgun is hydro dipped with a protective clear coat over the top. I have a 18.5" smooth bore barrel that is dipped to match as well, it was the original barrel the gun came with. I put the rifled slug barrel on. Inevitably the hydro dipping will get scuffed up in the woods and when that happens I'm going to take the finish off. The poly furniture is black underneath and if I can get all the finish off, it'll still look good. The gun store I bought it from had 2 at the time, this one and a black one. I wanted the black one, mostly because it was $50 cheaper, but my bonus check came about 5 days late and he sold it so I had to settle for the camo one. He gave me a deal on it though and sold it to me for the same price he sold the black one for.
Here's the website for the company that makes it: http://www.adaptivetactical.com/product ... system.php
I see their prices went up since I last looked.....
Also, no extra charge for the sarcasm. Kind of like the government, it's a free service I offer whether it's wanted or not
