Barrel Surface Treatments
MMI TruTec offers the patented QPC Salt-Bath Nitriding process for barrels and bolts bodies. This provides a thin (10-20 micron) layer of surface hardening. This produces a very slick, very hard surface that provides reduced friction in the bore. Early tests show Melonite barrel treatment can reduce throat wear and increase useful barrel life.
