Terra, is there any chance of being able to buy a barrel with a Gas Nitride treated bore as opposed to chrome lined?
Before distracting Alex from finishing my XCR-M, keep in mind the benefits of Nitride are dubious and only applicable with VERY specific types of metal, heat treatment time and temp, and gas type. Its a very inconsistant process which, and requires a lot of overhead to get, which is partly why the 556 is known as being a 2MOA to a 6 MOA gun. Irregularties in barrels = spotty accuracy. On machine tools nitriding works great because precision isnt a concern. Hell, I'm convinced only Swissarms is anal enough to mass produce nitride barrels and get it right.sounds interesting... I can bring it up with the engineers & Alex.
No.Is it the same with the gas nitride?
