I have a M1 Carbine I want to repark, but I don't know which kit to get.
Who has experience with these kits?
Is one brand better than another?
Any info would be a big help.
I have used Brownells Manganese Phosphate Kit with really good results. Im sure the kits you mentioned are the same, but I do not have experience with them. Here is Brownells stock numbers for referenece:
These stock numbers will get ya started. Good luck on your project. It was a blast to see my parts come out of the bath with a perfect flat black finish on them.
Hey Flashbang!! Nice name! We had a park and build a few weeks ago and had about a dozen guys from the FALfiles attent. We used the Shootersolution Kit (manganese) We had great results The parts came out beautifully. The kist supplys a prewash treatment,park solution and post treatment. Great products but you need to order well in advance because it needs to be shipped by ground because of ORMD
If you only have one gun to do, why bother buying a whole kit. Contact Dean at www.dgrguns.com,He specializes in re-finishing U.S.Military rifles.Hope this helps
I think I will go with ShootersSolution kit.
The stainless dip tank is $140.00 from Brownells. I have some guy working on one for me at work. If he comes through with the tank I will order the kit. I just refuse to pay $140.00 for a stainless steel rectangle.
