Thanks for sharing that thread. Sounds like I should be good to go. 


Nitriding, despite what the gun internet thinks, isn't a coating.  It's a nitrogen diffusion into the steel's crystalline structure.  It's a hardening process that leaves the first .005 - .020 (depending on the exact processing) of the steel from the surface down much harder than the metal deeper down.


It does offer some corrosion protection but that's not its main purpose.
