Wanted to share a little R&D we are doing here at Horizon. Watch the below video but we believed we have figured out color changing flutes for rifles. This way as your rifle approaches a defined temperature where barrel damage could occur your flutes will change letting you know you are approaching that temperature. Not to mention it looks awesome. Watch the video in HD to get a better look at the color change.

You should do some lettering on the barrel that says "I'm too damn hot"

BTW - That is very cool.

That is what I wanted to ask about. If it would work when applied to the rollmark of a factory rifle and be somewhat permanent and functional, I'd be interested in the product.
