A consensus from people who have done it? From what I understand, this treatment is basically corrosion proof and bullet proof. I admit that I haven't done it yet but I'll find out soon.
My reasons for doing it,
-Corrosion resistance, best available to my knowledge
-Most durable finish available with a hardness factor of about 65 - you can't scratch it with a knife
-Appearance, to match my barrel - the H&M process can be finished to a satin or matte black which would look very much like a rifle I had parkerized years ago.
-Silky smooth action
And finally cost. It's going to cost me $200 plus shipping plus my smiths fees for disassembling and reassembling to have 3 rifles done for what amounts to a life time finish.
And if you don't like the black finish you can paint or ceracote it.
