We had a member here bragging on PM's machining for a rmr and his pics indicated outstanding work. And I read another excellent recommendation for rmr machining by PM on the CZ forum.

    PM site says $30 for the barrel and $60 for the stripped slide....that's the best prices I have seen on line this morning searching. They do not do the process in-house, but says a leading finisher in the USA. Primary Machine is in Morgan City. Dem guys at PM got it goin on!

    thanks John. Most of my in-laws are in Morgan City and Thibodeaux so I’m down there quite a bit. Just might have to let these guys do some work. I’d been planning to get a few pieces Cerakoted but refinishing back to spec for those prices is ....more better!
    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    Why no mention of the woefully famous Krylon finish a lot of people go with?! Lol.....

    Ur welcome Mag. Nitriding, Melonite, Tenifer, or QPQ (ferritic nitrocarburizing) as some call it is an awesome finish. There are four specific types of QPQ finishing. Provides superior corrosion protection and lubricity. I've done a lot of reading/research on the topic and contrary to what many believe, a 4150 CM barrel nitrided is much harder that any grade of stainless steel barrel. From reading premium barrel manufacturers recommendations and break in procedures, this is what I have gleaned. Faxon, Shilen, and Krieger to name a few. A 4150 CM nitrided barrel is a very durable barrel, with a longer usable service life than SS.

    And i have not read a single negative word about Primary Machine in MC on line.
