Good to know, thanks! Do you know when SIG barrels started getting the nitron coating vs blueing? Thanks!

Their latest finish is called "Diamond Like Carbon" or DLC. I believe they started using it around 4 or 5 years ago.

It looks a lot like the Melonite or Black Nitride used on AR barrels and bolt carrier assemblies.
