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

5 of 5 Excellent Barrel! November 7, 2019
Reviewer: CJ from Newport Beach, CA United States  
I wanted to do another AR Build and wanted to get a higher quality barrel. The BA barrel quality is excellent compared to other barrel manufacturer's. I will be buying more of their barrels on any future build. KEEP ON ROCKING!

5 of 5 Excellent Value January 23, 2017
Reviewer: Wayne Duddlesten Jr from Grapeland, TX United States  
My clients are knowledgeable about the AR platform. When I show them the Ballistic Advantage barrel, they know I'm stocking the gear they desire. The BA is set up for the shooter. Mid length gas system and 1:7 twist rate. This is the barrel most of my clients ask for.
