When Garrett, from Alex Pro Firearms asked Cold Dead Hands to do a review on their Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier Group, I said to myself; “Sure, why not? I’ve heard a lot of hype over the NiB (nickel boron) plating, but never actually tested one.” Let’s face it, if you’re like me, who wouldn’t want something that makes clean up easier? Just ask my ex’s... I hate cleaning and sure enough, a NiB plated bolt carrier makes clean up a breeze.

A variety of thoughts came up when I was asked to test HT holsters. Who are they? What are they? So while waiting I decided to educate myself on the company and products.

Interestingly, I meet a lot of different people through our page and site, and Mike Martyn is one of those people. When I first caught a glimpse of Mike’s work, it was from an offhand picture on Facebook of a friend’s new grips. Now I’m here to say, these grips made the handgun really stand out in the picture, so naturally I had to inquire as to where she got them. This how I came to meet this modern day metalsmith. Mike Martyn of Martyn Engraving is exactly that... an old school engraver, in a time of CNC and Laser...
