Had the general wear concerns after wearing it on an atv ride, they asked for it back to check it out. Sent it in...blammo, they put the Armory kote on it. Had to send a big thank you email to the Custom shop. My baby is back at home, snug in the Hume open top. Love the new finish. Yes, all finishes can wear, but Springfield stepped to the plate and asked that I send it in, very cool of them. It's good to still have companies out there who care about customer service, Filson is another one that completely steps up. Sorry for the rant, I am pretty jacked about the new finish.
