After making a soft-jaw fixture to hold the partially finished barrel nuts after turning, I was able to get the initial run on them complete.
Bringing the tool steel URX Barrel nuts closer to production. Running some samples to ensure all the programming to dead one to get precise clamp load on the barrel to align it for optimal accuracy.
Programming the tool paths for OP1 on the lathe for the new URX barrel nuts.

I get asked this question a lot: Which is better NiB or QPQ?
The truth is it depends. They are both an incredibly durable finish when applied correctly (we use a licensed 3M nickel boron and QPQ by H&M Metal Processing, which are both the top names in the industry).
The area where NiB tends to shine is it's ease of cleaning and the QPQ excels in that it makes the material incredibly durable.
