    I'm in the process of getting set up to do little parkerizing jobs for my family, friends etc. I have been dabbling in duracoat and would like to park non parkerized guns. I am buying a stainless tank soon, have chemistry coming and a propane burner. The only thing I can't find relatively easy enough is what do you do about the insides of the barrel and reciever? Plug them off if they will park and how?

    Any insight is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Joe-

    Thanks for the tip on bbl plugs. Now, any insight on the reciever of a shot gun i.e. 1100, 870 etc. Can you dip the entire reciever or not?

    Somebody knows.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Nick,

    As long as the metal is steel, you can parkerize it. Check it with a magnet.

    Parkerizing does require that the surface of the metal be bead-blasted for a uniform color.
