Don't recall the source, but methinks the Glock Tennifer finish is actually a variant of nitride (not titanium, as it isn't gold...?). Is this true?
Have also heard that the Tennifer goes all the way into the barrel and through the bore. Is this true?
Now, assuming that whatever Tennifer is, it is hard enough to have a low coefficient of friction on itself or on most steels used in firearms manufacture.
BUT, what is the coefficient of friction for Tennifer and/or various Nitrides....with softer metals like lead?
Is there a difference which would in part account for the legendary ability of Glock barrels to lead up to the point of having bore obstructions?
Thanks, all. I'm no materials engineer, but inquiring minds want to know.
Cheapo the curious.
