Black oxide or stainless steelNotes:
- These knobs are taller than our other metric knobs to compensate for the countersunk factory screws in the Hyperstar secondary.
- Black oxide steel (shown in photo) is for dry environments. Lightly oil the knobs periodically as an anti-corrosion measure. Stainless steel provides better corrosion protection in coastal or high humidity areas, or in places where dew or other condensation is common.
- The factory dust cover will fit normally with Bob's Knobs installed.
