Nitron is the black finish on the sigs. Got this info from the Sig web sight.

Just thought about your question some more. If you meant what it is, as in what's it's make up/application. I'm GUESSING some sort of powder/baked on coating.

From what I've been told it's their version of a carbon nitride finish that they call "Nitron". Glock is researching what type of finish to put on their guns when they start building some completely in the US. I saw Carbon Nitriding was one of their choices (Sig's Nitron).

I dont THINK Nitron is a carburizing process. I BELIEVE it is only nitriding. Very similar to many gear hardening processes.

nitron used to be a TiN coating, but has become a carbon deposition process , unless it's changed back since aug 14 2007... which would be best i feel.
