One aspect that interested me beyond the external protection of the outside of the barrel was the protection of the interior of the barrel - the rifling. Sully claims (and I don't have reason to not believe him, but can't verify) that the treatment will extend the rifling life of the barrel.
I know a couple of AR manufacturers melonite the interior of the barrel, rather than chrome lining it. It is apparently being well received.
