The beauty of BlackIce and possibly nitride on the exterior is easy clean up and no oil is needed. Pretty much anything just wipes off of BlackIce with a damp cloth. The flat black is very attractive IMO. Its a great way to tone down a SS finish. Its available in tan and a olive green too.

Problem is I don't need another Muzzleloader at the moment. I have been going back and updating my Optics on the ones I do have and its a handful just getting everything re zeroed.

It's impossible to flake off. It's a metal treatment, not a coating. The black is just an effect of the treatment.

If I understand the process correctly, it's a molecular bonding not a coating. But I'm no chemist, just an old fart with half a brain

I hate to brag, really I do...but I can't help it this time. I ordered what was listed as an Accura V2 nitride/package including konus scope and cloth gun case from Amazon. Got the gun yesterday, but it turned out to be a Optima V2 nitride/package, scope, and case. I called Amazon on it an turns out they never had the Accura all along. Merry Christmas to me!!

Gonna take her to the range tomorrow along with the Optima V2 pistol to see how she does.

Be careful with that scope. It doesn't have a lot of eye relief.
