PVD Coating is the military standard coating for firearms. It provides high wear resistance and reduces the need for lubrication of steel and titanium. PVD coating lowers the friction of moving parts to ensure reliable function and prevent jamming. It also reduces oxidation as well as abrasion from dust, dirt, and sand.
