Does anyone here have the equipment to parkerize a gun part? I bought a Choate magazine extension for a Remington 870 Police Magnum that I bought last week thinking the parkerized finish of the extension would match the 870's finish. It does not. The extension is black whereas my 870 has a traditional dark gray parkerized finish.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I had my mag extension reparked by the small outfit in Texas that advertises in Shotgun News. It was a good match for the parkerizing on the 870. Texas Armament was the name of the company, I think. Good prices, too.

Cool. I get Shotgun News. I'll have to look around and see what I can find when I get home.

Brownells sells a bake on Moly/teflon spray that matches the color of parkerizing pretty closely. You spray and bake, i use a small toaster oven i got at Salvation Army for $5.
I use that method when i have small parts to do and don't want to heat up the whole shebang for parkerizing.

I have a park set-up at home. E-mail me. If you send it to me, I'll park it for you.

Before spending MORE money having it parkerized, I'd check and make sure the extension you got IS parkerized.
Choate's standard finish is a satin black sulfate finish, and I've had problems in the past with ordering parkerized and actually getting black.

The Choate parkerized finish IS a dark gray finish, NOT black.

Suggest you reconsider.



I concur. I parked the small parts of my underfolder assembly for an AK, and we'll just say that it didn't work anymore.
