  • 1x WMD Guns NiB-X Nickel Boron Gas Key


Gun owners know that in the firearm’s world little things really do mean a lot. You might not think about smaller parts like gas keys a whole lot, but when it’s time to choose one, you know you want the best components available. Wing Tactical is proud to bring the small arms community an excellent variety or top-quality parts like the WMD Guns NiB-X Gas Key. While you might not have thought of it before, it pays to use parts with superior coatings, even here on a basic gas system component.

WMD’s NiB-X is a Step Above

WMD’s NiB-X isn’t your run of the mill nickel boron coating. WMD creates their coating solution in house from its essential constituents. They don’t pour someone else’s formula out of a jug and hope for better results. There is no lead layering in WMD’s process. WMD’s NiB-X is lead-free and creates an even coating of superior hardness and lubricity on treated parts. WMD’s NiB-X coating is tested to wear 30% longer than traditional Chrome coatings.

But Why a Nickel Boron Gas Key?

In addition to superior wear characteristics, Nickel boron has an inherent lubricity that not only reduces wear, but also keeps dirt and fouling at bay. This means fewer issues with restrictions in the gas key itself and a long service life. When you choose a Nickel Boron gas key like WMD’s NiB-X Key, you save yourself trouble down the line. Don’t worry about the effects of inferior coatings. Give yourself an edge by choosing the right components the first time.
