    Is it possible to do a slight graphite coating on the nipple threads?
    Would this work to stop siezeing, make for easier removal etc?

    Would plating the threads (or the entire lower half, since I don't think most plating methods would let you just do threads) with chrome or some other metal with a low coefficient of friction work?

    Theres a nickle/teflon mix he's tryin, as well as jus teflonin tha threads. Some other coatins, question is standing up to tha gaff.

    If it'll take 5000 rounds and screwin in and out 100 times or more and hang on, he'll call it good.

    Ya can imagine, this DO take some time! Tha MANN DONT use tha customers fer beta testinon most products, in particular these, market ready. Expensive? Mosts us could RETIRE on what he spends r&d!

    Let me clarify this - Thom here doesn't mean "most of us" as in any one person could retire on what he spends in research and development, but most of us could retire, en masse, on what he spends on R&D. :what:


    Couldn't help myself. :D

    There are lots of us out here that would be glad to help out with the beta testing; and that doesnt mean that we would stop being customers either.

    (are the 44 belted bullets available yet?)

    That's why I was thinking hard chrome. If it's tough enough to plate the inside of high-powered rifle bores, it should be tough enough for nipples, right?

    Problem, hard chrome i'm told now, is build up, sharp edges, also, ya needs anodend all that, too expensive fer a tube! Electroless process i'm told is better, NP3 nickle/teflon.

    Ah, I see. My only experience with teflon coating alone is that it rubs off very quickly on Glock internals, and also doesn't make any difference to smoothness/ease of trigger pull at all. In fact, the parts that only rub against plastic have even had the teflon worn off of them, and I've only shot the gun about 200 times, and maybe 1000 dry-fires. Hopefully the nickel-teflon stuff will do better than that.

    I was thinking that this sounded like a perfect application for NP3.

    The adhesion is impressive--it won't peel. The corrosion resistance should be as good as chrome and the lubricity is going to be better. Due to the nickel teflon composite, as the nickel/teflon wears, more teflon is exposed so the lubricity is maintained until the coating is completely worn off--something that's not easy or quick to accomplish.

    I don't know about the difficulties of melonite/tenifer treatment, it would certainly cure the corrosion and hardness problems, but it's not going to do much for lubricity. I wonder if you can put NP3 over melonite?

    Some of the nitride finishes are pretty durable too.

    +1 on the NP3. I have several pistols finished in it and I plan to get a few knives and tools done in the future. It's the best anti-rust/anti-galling finish I have personally used.
