Not sure, but if you buy 4130, doesn't it usually come without any protection, like galvanization? Al N6TA The problem with most sources is that shipping is the killer. As someone said, under a certa

Is it sufficient to ask for 4130 or 1026 or must one consider the details of the heat treat, quench and temper, etc. If you go to a supplier, you will pay for the 'certs' that guarantee that you get
