This is if you start with a lapped barrel to begin with.....
I've been considering the same thing... that said, one of my smiths (I have two ) said he wanted me to check the accuracy before doing the treating just to make sure nothing is wrong. Also, I'm thinking it wouldn't hurt to run a few pills down the bore to burnish it a little.

Re: Meloniting

That's what I was thinking. Due to the hardening process, I was thinking it would be better to break in before treating.

Checking the accuracy is a good point. I guess you wouldn't want to spend another $100 on a dud........Rich

Re: Meloniting

Just had one done over christmas from Rodney Lainer @ mmi-tru tec, it came out great, the black it turns the stainless steel matches the cera-coat almost to a t and you cannot spray ceracoat that even. the cost for barrel and break was $65 + 20 return shipping. I will never build another gun again that does not have a melonited barrel
