does anyone know where I can learn this?
Ive seen ads for that in the shotgun news but thats all I know
I have parkerized many a gun. In a nutshell, here is how I do it:
Disassemble and degrease
Beadblast all carbon steel parts
Cook in Dicro Clean 909, a pre bluing cleaner/degreaser about, 190 degrees
Put the parts in clean hot water for about a minute, not too long or they will rust
Into the parkerizing solution they go, just until the parts stop "gassing" (bubbling)
remove and rinse off solution with clean water
place in water displacing oil overnight
Go to www.brownells.com for everything you ever wanted to buy concerning gunsmithing
EDIT- all of this is done in gas fired tanks made of carboin stel, except the park tank which must be stainless.
