Thanks for the post BG-Z. I've been looking into Melonite. As far as I can understand, it's the US EPA legal version of the Tenifer or Tufftride process... and like Tenifer, an extremely hard and corrosion resistant finish.
In theory, it should extend the useful life of the barrel substantially.
Is your Krieger barrel steel or SS... and who did the Melonite, Krieger, or was it sub'd out to a professional service like HEF?
