Love Black Nitride

I just had my Citadel Compact treated w/ black nitride from H&M Metal, Welcome to H & M Metal Processing. It is awesome, not only does it look great by it is a durable finish as well. You can read all the specs on the coating online, so I won't bore you w/ them. I will tell you that it is a black silking feeling w/ a satin look. I had the entire gun done except any springs and the trigger. They took less than two weeks and it's great. I went to the range yesterday and put 100 LRN through her and the barrel only took a couple of passes of the brush to clean, a vast improvement. If you call them, ask for Shade he's the gun guy and he is a gun guy. He can answer any questions you could have and they do any gun you want done. I had a Kimber Gold Match that I had hard chromed and I like this even better. Here are some pics mine.

I would've posted one of the other side, but I couldn't edit the sn out. Sorry

Nice!!!

So this is basically melonite.
How much did it cost?
I'll have to look into them for finishing my winter project.

I like it! Looks really good. I prefer a carry piece to have a dark finish like you went with. The durability and ease of cleaning sound like a plus as well.

Your pictures don't do it justice. Black nitride is an incredible finish and very durable for sure. I , like you love it and I understand your excitement over it but until most see it in person they won't truly understand just how nice a good black nitride finish looks, feels and wears.

Nice job, you know have a gun that should last a long time.
