    Thanks for posting the review.

    Do you happen to know how this may be similar to or different from the Blackstar process?

    from there page...

    BlackStar's process is a patented, electrochemical bore
    polishing procedure that improves a barrel's inherent accuracy,
    anti-fouling potential, and cleanability. The process simultaneously
    micro-polishes and deburrs the surface while electrochemically
    micro-machining the bore dimensions. It is completely non-abrasive.

    sound like a fancy name for this

    Electropolishing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    something they have been doing to SS parts for years for surgical equipment

    think of it as "super lapping"..

    but it wont make the barrel last longer.. you could do it 1st, then nitride after
