I just noticed they're starting to get dark i wonder if the wax(renaissance) i use has anything to do with that?
Couldn't tell you, mine never lasted long enough to get age on them. I had three different sets break on one of my Glocks in one shooting season and TruGlo's warranty is awful. It's an example of an excellent concept, poorly executed. They simply will not hold up to actual use.

Your OP was misleading, didn't know you already finished the project. I read it as you were seeking input. As for the Viridian, between you and Rhino - I'm going to have to get me one. They look nice and I'm looking to put one on my second HK45 Compact.

1 Have you ever heard of a "finished" project!?? any input is good!! as the tfo go I've put about 1,500 rds with them on no issues with the sight itself they're still in one piece but i have noticed that the tritium is not as bright as it used to they've only being on the gun 4 about a year. So I'm definitely looking in to replacing them if any one has experience with the HK original adjustable night sight would be good to know about them b4 spending $175 on them!

Viridian is making a name for themselves finally, my co-workers dad works there in Minnesota, and feeds me all the insider stuff coming out. Is the slide stainless or was it taken down to 'the white'?

The VIRIDIAN was the most expensive part of the project but man I got my $$$ worth it is an awesome tool it holds zero like nothing I've tried b4 and i tried a few including the x400 second best in my opinion and only because the green laser is way brighter in daylight!! and the strobe light will make you puke in a few seconds!! lol

The gun was originally hk black I just polished the sides of the slide with "MOTHER'S" mixed with "WHITE DIAMOND" taped the top so the finish will remain intact. It took long hrs but I think it looks awesome and besides it show the craftsmanship HK puts into building this guns I did not have to sand any part of the slide everything was done by hand no machines of any kind involved the SS surface under the"HK HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT FINISH" is flawless i was amazed!

Hey Kost! Have you asked your friend when they are going to release USP-specific mounting rails? They've had this on their website for about a year and half...

Note: Additional mounting options available in 2011 (Rail Sets specifically designed for your Viridian C5 Series or X5L Gen 2 equipped H&K USP).

BTW JCACV2, your USP45 project gun looks fantastic!

Ouch, in the white carbon steel, not good.
Well, the nitrocarburizing should still protect it if he only polished the slide.

Not my style, but if it floats your boat then have at it.

Like i said is a project I'm experimenting with the finish a little bit but the goal is to send it out to robar for an np3+ coating when funds become available!! (and if gf don't find out)
