#4.  How good is NP3 and Roguard, what do they cost?  What's the >   
#    typical waiting period?

We have been using Roguard as our standard finish on all of our 
rifles for the past 2 years.  My opinion *** IT IS THE BEST GUN 
FINISH AVIALABLE TODAY ***.  We usually use NP3 only on the bolt 
assembly, it makes a great looking combination and really adds to the 
corrosion resistance. The price is high but you get what you 
pay for.  Robbie is working on getting the turn around time down to 3 
or 4 weeks, hope he does because we sometimes wait 6 or 7 weeks now.

Not so.  NP3 is electroless nickel with PTFE molecules uniformly 
distributed through out its entire thickness.  As the surface wears 
(which is very little) more PTFE molecules are exposed maintaining 
the self lubrication properties.

The combination of Roguard and np3 is the finest finish you can put on a
hand gun without a doubt!  Especially on a concealed carry gun.  I carry
an officers modle that Robar refinished for me two years ago.  Living in
Phoenix that means that 6 months out of the year it is bathed in sweat. 
I challenge anyone to tell that it wasn't refinished yesterday. The np3
on the frame gives the lubricity and corrosion resistance and the
Roguard slide is a resistant and pleasing finishing touch.

Robbie took his apprenticeship from me and was taught to use the best
parts and do every thing in his power to try not to make a mistake that
would keep the gun from shooting.  I know that when I was through with
him he knew how to build a rifle that would shoot.  That being said we
all have employees and we all have to spend more time on the phone and
doing paperwork than we would like and all any of us can hope for is to
catch any mistakes before they get out the door.  I am sure he has a
satisfaction guarantee.
