Quench Polish Quench (QPQ) is a specialized type of nitrocarburizing case hardening that increases corrosion resistance. It is sometimes known by the brand name of Tufftride, Tenifer or Melonite. QPQ is a huge improvement over Chrome Lined barrels. Unlike chrome lining, where the chrome is built up on the surface, QPQ converts the surface without the risk of dimensional build up. The technique is used when two or more of the following properties are required in a work piece:

  • wear resistance
  • corrosion resistance
  • lubricity
  • fatigue strength


  • Length - 14.7"
  • Material - 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium

5 of 5 Great buy! March 10, 2017
Reviewer: gary flowers from silsbee, TX United States  
I love pencil profiles. This is my first  Ballistic Advantage. I usually buy the Faxon but wanted to try a little less $$$ barrel so I chose this one for my upcoming build.  The scale says 22 OZ's. It's a pencil profile that's LW but it still has some girth and isn't real thin which I think will give a little more accuracy than the true thin pencil. But I must say, yesterday I fired at least 50 to 60 rounds out of my Faxon pencil I just received from RTB, not the Gunner that has a little bit more girth but the really thin barrel, and I was amazed at the accuracy after smoking the thing. Back to the B.A., I haven't shot it yet but the looks, the feel, and the weight is right on target. I have to give it a 5 star for now but will be testing it out this coming Tuesday and I will post the results. It's going on my build with the SLR ION ULTRA LW 13' rail which BTW, is also beautiful, a fantastic product.

Best price on a ballistic Advantage 14.7 barrel. It was shipped an hour later and came second day air (I didn't pay for second day air). Excellent vendor.
