Color case price on K80

2284 7
I'm getting some prices together to buy a new K-80 and I made a casual inquiry for the addition cost of color case hardening. I was told $2225 over and above the retail cost of a nickled standard receiver. I was a bit taken back but now I'm wondering if that price was a mistake or correct? Anybody know?
Thanks B C

So whats the difference between case colored and case hardened? I sold a Citori that was Case Colored from the factory. I know, from Jason, that K-80 receivers are hardened for durability. Dave

DTrykow,

Case colored is really Color Case Hardened. It is heat treating the reciever to make it harder. You are right all K80 are case hardened. Most are done then nickel is applied so it doesn't matter what they look like. But they can do them and try to showcase the beautiful colors that come from the hardening process. This is a tricky and is done by hand using charcoal and bone. When done right it is striking.
