    Well, here we are, 2 o'clock in the morning and I just took this picture of Mike still in the shop putting his touch on the pistons that are coming through production, making sure they are as perfect as he can make them before they go to centerless grind. This is part of the reason it takes so long to produce a piston but also the reason you will know you are getting true quality when you get a Sadlak part.

    True machinists are true perfectionists, and justly so. I have personally known a couple as close friends. Those who believe in close enough for government work, need not apply.

    can I assume these are fire pistons? and if so, could we have a link to see the product please?;)

    Ah, an entirely different sort of piston. I wasn't sure if it was one of your side lines, or even automotive pistons. Thank you for the clarification.

    Yes indeed they will.

    Also, the stainless steel we use, which exceeds the USGI specification, has fewer impurities than the standard grade SS. The very thin but very hard Titanium Nitride coating not only functions as a solid lubricant to reduce friction but also protects the base alloy from the galling and pitting that occurs from the corrosive nature of the gas. Some ammo is more corrosive than others but with the TiN coating, the residue can be easily cleaned from the surface of the piston. The Sadlak piston will make it easier for you to consistently pass the tilt test and we all know that a clean gas system will help improve accuracy.

    I have come to appreciate a TiNi coating on a knife. =)

    I guess I've been riding Mike a little hard lately but we need to get these pistons onto the next step. He hasn't reacted well to my badgering
