Curious about the button rifled barrel comment. Would you have a link or source that I could read up on that?
I spoke with Tim North at Broughton Barrels and he has no problem with treating one of his barrels, but he's a barrel maker not a Nitride applicator.
The reason I ask is that I have a Broughton at the gunsmiths now getting bore scoped to see if it's clean enough and has little enough wear after break in to be nitrided. I want to make the most informed decision I can.
Pictures? Melonite.Blk. Nitriding is done to increase barrel life. If color is what you're looking for a pic on a computer rarely good enough to be able to tell much. Looks like bluing, to me. Besides, who's got the time to take pics just to post on the web?How about some pictures?
