Where do you get your parkerizing, and duracoat supplies at?
Thanks, T M
Guys, I'm talking about phosphating (NOT PARKERIZING). I have phosphated many guns and never had any problem with rust. I shoot them in the rain, snow and on occasion in a salt environment. No rust! I do take proper care and oil the finish when it becomes dry. If you do phosphating and you get rust your doing something wrong.mike26038 said:Park left unpainted can rust very easily.. Just ask and garand left in a damp place..
The process is very easy, having the stainless steel tanks and gas burners is something else.WC846 said:is that process hard to do/
So did I, until I read about the process by the Parker Company. The big difference was you had to add steel shavings or steel wool the the almost boiling liquid. I did use this type of solution a long time ago but it took to much time to disolve the steel wool in the solution.mike26038 said:Call me stupid but I allways belived the phosphating and parkerizing was the same thing??
