I don't often discuss openly how our guns are build due to some of the information are rather sensitive nature.  However I think on this topic is worth to discuss.  

Recently there has been some discussion on Social Media that our Krytac Motor isn't a Neodymium motor.  The argument is base on the information that Neo magnet are always coated in Chrome like color.    And ferrite magnet have the "Pencil Lead" color.

Here is a sample of an e-mail I got from Ben

There is also review video talked about the motor isn't Neodymium magnet.  

"Always coated, Always have that chrome appearance. " He's probably base on this article.

"Neodymium Iron Boron magnets require a protective coating / surface finish to prevent corrosion of the magnet"


The coating is Nickel base plating.  It's the same material we used on our Trigger contact for protection.   Hence the color looked silver/chromed finished.  Ben claimed that our magnet doesn't have coating, doesn't have chrome finish and it has the "Pencil lead" color therefore it's not a NeoDymium magnet.  

While it is correct that normal Neo Magnet have Nickel plating for protection.  There are more than one ways to manufactured a magnet.  Our magnet is a powered form bonded with synthetic resin therefore it doesn't have or require Nickel plating for protection.  Hence the appearance look like a normal ferrite magnet.

This is one of many google image search of a Bonded NdFeB (aka Neodymium Iron Boron) magnet.  It surely doesn't look Chrome to me.  ;-)


So here is a lesson learned.  You can't judge a book by it's cover and there are more than one way to skin a cat.   Please remember that.

And for those would like to read more about Bonded NdFeB.  Read the following link.
