See the PVD DESCRIPTION page under FINISHES for an explanation/description of the PVD process and properties.
This service is for PVD and Black nitride coating of your barrel which you send in.
Coating a barrel begins with us giving the barrel a completely matte/non-reflective finish removing any factory/prior coating. We then can either do a surface polish of the barrel hood and barrel, OR we can leave the barrel completely matte/dull. When performing the polished option, we strive for a mirror-like finish on the right side and top of the barrel hood specifically. Barrels with fluting will typically look better with a polish of the barrel itself, thus revealing a glossy barrel with matte fluting accenting it. This option does not include any machining/fluting, we are simply refinishing the barrel you send us. We will accept pretty much any model semi-auto pistol barrel for this option.
