Thread: Any Issue Taking a SCD Apart?

    Any Issue Taking a SCD Apart?

    I picked up one of your blem SCDs to use on my Glock 30S. For the price, figured it was definitely worth to try out. However, I have my entire Glock done in CPII (by CCR), which is along the lines of NP3. Saving some coin on something Iíd probably have refinished. I have battery acid sweat, so even though it is stainless and black oxide finish, I prefer to be proactive with rust prevention. Not to mention, it would match the rest of the gun.

    Anyways, I looked at it quickly, and it looks like a roll pin holding it together. Any issue knocking that pin out to plate the two pieces separately? It is such a simple design that I canít see there being a problem, but rather ask those who designed/build it. Had tight tolerance firearms done in these finishes (642-1 done in NP3 Plus, then had a fitted 9mm cylinder done separately), never an issue.

    Other than that, I used to be hesitant with the SCD. Not that I had issue with the use, but because wasnít sure on the feedback (working with holstering), and how people would utilize it. Figured it was fixing a problem that normal training would fix. But starting to move into AIWB carry... and rather have the SCD. Iím kind of attached to my right testicle. While describing something on the internet can go either way, actually messing around with it on my Glock really allowed me some idea on how it can be implemented into carry. Even other than AIWB, I like having that heads up that something isnít right with insertion... whether it clothes or brass. Iím pretty good with checking, but like redundancy.

    If you ever do go into other platforms, would love a SCD for my older M&Ps (.40 Compact and 5Ē Pro). Other than that, everything else is hammer fired.

    Thanks for your time.

    I apologize for the delay responding, I somehow missed this message until now.

    There should not be any issue with taking the SCD apart and coating it -- assuming the buildup of the coating isn't so much as to cause interference between the parts when reassembled. The pin is small, and not particularly easy to remove/install.

    No problem... Tapatalk just went off the deep end with their latest update, so took a little to get on here.

    Roger that. Iíll send it over to CCR, and have them see what they can do with it. Plating is pretty thin, so hopefully it works out. Either way, Iíll post the results in case there is any interest. Worst case scenario, I buy another SCD. [emoji41]

    Thanks for the reply.

    The various nickel teflon (NP3, etc) coatings I have dealt with from various vendors are .0003"-.0005".

    NP3 sucks for a Glock slide, very slick. Don't know if that other coating will be similar

    Lots of folks like to church up the name, but nickel with teflon imbedded is NP3. Nickel Boron is about as slick with a much higher thickness (Per KC Jones who does the finish for WMD, .005"). Any of the nickel based finishes (that provide serious corrosion resistance) will be slick.

    Only pistol I had done by Robar was my S&W 642-1, and the 9mm cylinder I sent in later to be matched. Done in NP3 Plus, and along with my two shotguns (870 Police and Ithaca 37; same finish), no issues with slipping off anything plated.

    I have a few pistols done with CPII... PX4 (had two done; sold the .45, still have the 9mm), Glock 30S, and Ruger LCP. Never had any issue with slickness. Had magazines and Garand clips done, as well as small parts of a half dozen other firearms (barrels, controls, charging handles, bolts). No issues thus far... and have been using CCR since 2005ish. Started CPII on guns in either 2009 or 2010.

    While NP3 and other similar finishes are self-lubricating... it is far from an oiled gun part. Parts that have serrations, like the rear of slides, still function the same. Used the Glock with sweaty hands, and no problem. If I had a grip issue with a CPII coated firearm, Iíd say I probably would have the same issue with the stock finish.

    I canít see an issue arising, especially with the serrations on the back of the SCD, but either way, will post about the end result. If it doesnít work out, the plated one will be filed away (looking at the circular filing cabinet next to my desk)... and will order a new SCD (non-blem).
