When I look at photos of the standard K80 receivers I see differences in the look of the finish and engraving. I know there are nickel and nitrite finishes...are both being used now...whats the history of that? Also some of the newer engraving has a depth to it, like its been shaded with a pigment....? So when did these changes take place and are the higher grade receivers nickel? Thanks for input.....

I've noticed a slight variation on the standard grade engraving from the older ones to present day. Now, from my understanding the nitrite finish is supposed to more durable than any finish they have. I don't know the process they use for the newer engraving patterns that show a blued background. I'm not sure how they will hold up over time from handling. If I was looking to purchase, my first choice would be a nitrite finish.
