Barrels with a PVD coating have been custom coated by a PVD coating service, not by StormLake. Barrels are available in plain stainless steel, Black Isonite® (Melonite) or several PVD Physical Vapor Deposition coatings as shown in the table below.
PVD coatings are much more durable than plain stainless steel or Melonite. PVD coatings also offer additional corrosion protection. The Coefficient of Friction in the table below describes how easily the barrel slides. We now do a before and after hardness check on a barrel from each batch.
Your barrel may have some tiny dots on the opposite chamber side from the logo. Plain stainless barrels are in the original, unopened StormLake packaging.
Custom PVD coated barrels have been removed from the StormLake package, sent to a PVD coating service factory for PVD coating, then put back in original StormLake packaging when done and had labels applied to the package describing the coating making a new custom package. Any barrel coating described as "2nd" means the finish is uneven, usually due to electric arcing in the PVD chamber. Often looks like a spiderweb lightening bolt pattern.
Will usually be the same price as a plain stainless finish barrel. Barrel 2nds shown are examples and not necessarily the exact barrel you will receive. You may ask for a specific photo if interested.Coefficient of Friction (lower is better). Black Isonite® (Melonite) StormLake factory coating.

Machined from certified 416R stainless steel for superior strength, durability, and accuracy.Barrels are match grade, hardened to 40-42 HRC and cut broach rifled to shoot jacketed or lead bullets. All barrels are chambered for fuller case support. These are new, genuine Storm Lake barrels obtained from Storm Lake or a Storm Lake distributor. All items listed are in stock for the quantities listed. Storm Lake is now "proofing" their barrels which is a test firing.
Some barrels may have oily residue on them, especially the Black Isonite®/Melonite coated barrels. Occasionally there will be a brownish rust colored residue inside a barrel. The apparent "rust" spot is left over from heat treat when someone didn't thoroughly clean a barrel after heat treat. The picture(s) are generic. The first picture is similar to the item in this listing.
The next few pictures show additional coatings/colors. The last two pictures show several boxes with with barrels that have pierced the plastic liners and a box that is undamaged. Packaging may be padded envelope, plain envelope or box regardless of packaging type chosen. It is rare, but the US Post Office sometimes runs out of a package type. Please check and double check your mailing address at checkout.Sometimes the address change does not "stick" and the label still prints with the old address. Link after ordering to pay for an address change. When this happens, we cannot help you since we are neither lawyers or licensed exporters. NO sales to APO/FPO, Protectorates or Exports.
Please do NOT ask to export or sell to non-citizens. Federal guidelines seem to change daily and I can't keep up. We cooperate with law enforcement. Get the idea I hate scammers yet? Venue for disputes is Illinois Central District Court, 100 NE Monroe St, Peoria, IL or Circuit Court of Tazewell County, 342 Court St, Pekin, IL.
Please do not ask me for threaded barrels. I think California claims a threaded barrel makes a pistol an a&&ault weapon just like Grampa's old 22 that holds 11 rounds. Barrels are highly discounted and there are no additional discounts for less than 5 barrels. You may also ask for a quote before ordering. We do not price match.The prices is what the prices is. Please do not claim a defective barrel if you ordered the wrong barrel as it will cost you. Product must be unused, undamaged, resellable and packaging must be intact (no damage).
If I void a label, the SCAN form can't be used and I need to stand in line and get all the packages scanned. This is a real pain so I do not do this anymore. Add that to cut and paste and the errors compound.
