    WMD Guns NiB-X Coating

    No, I am not getting paid for putting this out:

    WMD Guns, located in Stuart, Florida offers a proprietary nickel-boron metal finish for firearms. I read a review a couple months back where the author had his Belgium Browning A-5 coated in NiB-X, and he gave top marks for the quality of the finish and corrosion resistance of their product. As a plus, this finish reportedly has inherent lubricity properties. He reported a $200 cost. I suspect it may be more now that the word is out. You can visit their website and get contact info and inquire into pricing if interested.

    I'm not suggesting anyone refinish a perfectly good Marlin in this stuff, but it might be an attractive alternative to those cherished lever guns in need of a complete re-blueing due to corrosion or whatnot. The finish is a matte silver; however they now offer a black ceramic overcoat finish at additional cost.

    Here is the link to the article, it is the second of a two-part piece:

    The Browning A5 12 Gauge - Resurrecting a Legend - Part 2

    Please post opinions, I'm interested in hearing what the consensus is. Maybe 'someone' might refinish an old 336C truck gun in this stuff...a NiB-X silver Marlin in .35 Remington for inclement-weather hunting...?

    James, I like the finished look quite a bit. It certainly would make for an all weather Marlin. I can imagine a black stock in contrast with matte silver for a great look.

    Thanks for posting.

    Although I am partial to blued steel (especially on an older gun), this turned out real nice!

    This finish is great.
    If you get it on a slide pistol, be prepared to need a little extra grip. It is much slicker than blued steel.
    I had a old Sig 220 coated with it, inside and out. Never had a slide move like it was on melted butter like that.
    The cleaning claims are true, you can literally wipe away powder and oil with a dry rag, and BAM, it's clean.
    There is a company here in Arizona that puts the NP3 on, and guarantees it for life.
