...I am not a nitride fan but DLC seems to be a superior finish...
Depends on purpose. Nitride is superb for abrasion resistance; DLC is, too. Nitride is better than DLC at corrosion resistance. DLC is far easier to remove and redo, and better therefor if the gun's going to be modified. If the gun's in its final configuration and you want the metal to be as bullet proof as possible, nitride wins.

Big fan of both.
