Well, I can't seem to find any threads on this subject, although i know there have been many.

What is an efficient way to give a firearm a parkerized type finish?


I wouldn't even think about doing a blued style, because it seems like it would be kinda difficult.



Gun-Kote? Where do you get it?


Feel free to post some pics of your refinish jobs.

where do i get that, and is it hard to do?

www.molyresin.com/

Its easy. Clean part, bake in oven till it reaches 100 degress then paint and finally cure in oven at 300 degrees for one hour. You need an airbrush or some other cheap paint gun to spray it though. Some say harbour freight sells one that works good for $20. It matches park great.

No pink? Where to find pink finish?

Duracoat is another option.  Doesn't have to be baked and comes in a shitload of colors.

Brasspile has done some extremely nice work with the stuff.

Here is an informative site I dug out of my bookmarks. If you are interested in trying your hand at parkerizing it is possible to do it yourself and it really isnt all that expensive to get into.

Here is a thread I started on handgun refinishing.

www.arfcom.com/forums/topic.html?b=5&f=4&t=11645

It wasn't a real popular thread but it got a few good responses.

Why not actually Parkerize the thing?  It's simple as hell, and the manganese phosphate can be had in bulk cheap at pottery supply stores.  

For a long metal tank, grab a stainless drywall mud pan from Lowe's / Home Depot.

Home park jobs don't turn out so good.  Depending on what you have, take it down and just send the parts to be parkerized off to a shop and it will be done MUCH better and faster for about $100 (if you do the detail work).

Then put Matte Black on top of it and you have pretty much an indestructable finish.

I don't have any shop set up right now, hopefully soon, the foundation to garage has been poured again, just gotta put walls and a roof on and a stove in it before it snows.  <crossing fingers>

www.lauerweaponry.com are great people to deal with.




you kick ass!!!

You are incorrect sir. I have done several and they all turned out very nice. You just need to do it right is all.

Here is an 80% 1911 I made.  I parkerized it and then hot blued over the park (in my garage) to get a deep black:

Wow! Nice work

Brass does do a great job and that duracoat stuff is pretty mean.
