I have an A-2 that has seen better days.

What should I use to refinish it, and has anyone else done thins and posted a how-to?

Thanks.

If you want it professionally redone, DPMS offers batch industrial black teflon refinishing of receivers for about $75 (if I recall correctly).

I had a preban Colt A2 redone by Colt. It came back "new".

BEWARE: You need to ask how long they will have your receiver. They wait until they get enough to do a batch. My first experience only took four weeks (excellent). My last receiver took six months (major bummer).

You can also get just a re-anodize job without Teflon for under $50. If it's good enough for Uncle Sugar, it's good enough for me!

BTW, they do an outstanding job. Just check on the time frame if you're in a hurry.

I recommend Mac's Shootin Iron for the finish.
He did an incredible job on a S&W 442 for me that gets carried a lot. A great finish at a great price!
