Short Action Customs has been using MMI Trutec ( for all of our Melonite needs. Melonite treatment of complete rifles will increase lubricity between moving parts, reduce dimensional wear between moving parts, prevent galling and will darken the metal. Barrels can benefit from Melonite treatment with reduced fouling of the bore, increased velocity and extended barrel life.

We encourage the customer to do their own research on Melonite treatment of barrels and metal components before choosing this service. Short Action Customs prefers to break the barrel in prior to Melonite. Melonited barrels will require through cleaning from the end user.

Complete Rifle…$225
Single barrel…$135 (Not including the cost of ammunition for barrel break in).
