    Default Yet another parkerizing question

    I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but figured I'd toss it out there just in case.

    Is there any reason a barrel assembly can't be immersed in parkerizing solution and the bore be okay? I didn't think the parking would affect the bore assuming it's chrome-lined; am I correct in this assumption? or does the barrel need to be plugged to avoid contact with the bore?

    Thanks one and all!

    I dont plug mine to park them as long as they are chrome lined.

    cool beans. all of the rifles we're parking are chromed. i do have a few yugo kits, but none of those will be parked. one will be left as-is to preserve the rifle's character, and my UF will be getting the gold gunkote treatment.

    In the '60's I bought an M-1 that came out of Pakistan. [I don't know how they got it.] It was refinished and they Parkerized the bore. The instructions said don't worry just shoot it and the finish will wear away.

    I Parkerized a few bolt carriers with Combloc chrome gas pistons still attached, and the pistons took on a gray cast. I believe that the Phosphoric acid does something to the chrome but personally I wouldn't worry. Just be aware that something happens.

    I'd love to see the gold Gunkote results.
