    I'm always weary about nitrided parts. The biggest problem Century is having with their RAS47 trunnions is that they were nitrided and not properly heat treated. While the surface was hardened, the steel itself, under the nitride crust, was mush

    some quick reading tells nitriding is a heat treatment, but should be used on metal already hardened at a higher temperature than the salt bath
