I think Robar went out of business about two years ago.

There were always 2 parts to the business. One gunsmith (ROBAR) and one Metal Finishing (CTI).

Robbie Barkmann sold the gunsmith side to Freddie Blish. Thats who ultimately closed it a few years ago.

However, the metal finishing part of the operation is still going strong and running under Robbie.

I just got some NP3 done last week.

The only difference now is that you need to send your gun to one of the approved gunsmiths who disassemble it and send it to CTI. Then it gets back to them and they reassemble it and you get it.

Thank you.
I looked a couple years ago to send them another slide and couldn't.
I ended up using nickle birin on that one and regret doing so.
