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.  http://www.ndfeb-info.com/coatings.aspx

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

[Nd-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.
