    Question What is Nitron Blackening?

Its an extremely thin finish which can go on the tightest guns without having any tolerance issues.This also can be used on all types of Stainless steel parts or components.This can be a high gloss or a matte finish.
    Does it lend any surface hardness?

    Does it lend any rust resistance?

    Is it paint? Is it plating? Is it like Tenifer? How is it done?

    Nitron finishing will blacken stainless steel through the use of oxidizing type blacking compounds. This process produces black coatings on stainless steel and alloy steels by a "conversion" process. The chrome in the stainless steel is involved in a chemical reaction with the oxidizers in the solution producing chrome-sulfide. The application of the black finish is dependent upon the surface treatment of the steel. Bead blasted surfaces will have a satin black appearance while a surface blasted with aluminum oxide will be matte in nature. Importantly, dimensional changes involved in blackening are extremely small, less than 0.0001 Mil. This thickness of the black oxide type coating ranges from 0.00006-0.0001 Mil depending on the type of alloy being treated. Blackening of stainless steel not only makes the firearm more attractive but adds to its corrosion resistance (96 hours salt spray per Mil-C-13924B) and prevents galling, common in stainless steel guns.

    Is a S&W Model 10 a candidate for the carbon steel Nitron process?
    It's Mar. 23/2012 and it's time for me to leave. It was fun while it lasted. I am going to miss most of you guys.

    As soon as I recieve my rifle back from Dlask that are doing a rebarrel I will post before and after photo's along with a youtube video showing the finnal resualt. Although this will take some time. But like my mom always says:
    "Good things come to those who wait."
    Unless some one else out there can beat me to the punch

    So this is like black oxide?

    Not applied to the bore?

    Correct in not being applied to a bore. But it is much thinner and tougher than black oxide.

    What if you did apply it to a bore ?

    Is it similar to the Nitride finishes some people are using on AR barrels? I have an S&J and I'm diggin the copper resistance the bore seems to have.
    2014-02-09: 10,000 rounds thru' my DAR-701 since Sept 2012.
    5 barrels on 3 uppers, Maybe it's time I finally build another lower.
