ICE Arms has just announced a new line of Nitride (aka Melonite) coated parts including Barrels, BCG’s and Gas Blocks. Nitride is a pretty neat coating, especially when you read about it and how it is applied. Basically the parts are given a super heated salt bath that diffuses Nitrogen and Carbon into the surface of the metal. Because it is in a liquid form it is a very uniform surface which makes it extremely slick while also being extremely durable. For instance in barrels, the coating goes on the inside and outside of the barrel giving it a slick similar to chrome lining but the inside of a Nitride/Melonite barrel will last a lot longer than chrome lining. I check out the pricing on these and was surprised to see that these were very reasonably priced even before using our discount code. Take a look at the items below.
