    They are a form of stainless but not surgical stainless. They will sometimes have pin ***** size rust spots. I enquired at GMK and there response was it was 'normal'.

    Hope per that helps a little. Can't comment on the coating side of things.

    Well I can only comment on Cerakote and that is, I tried to scratch two Cerakoted pipes by banging them together. Well I did manage to mark one of the pipes until I rubbed the mark of with the palm of my hand. Mark gone and coating not compromised!

    A very impressive hard coating, will definitely be doing two of my rifles in the near future.
