    Does anyone know the best way to seal a polished reciever on a remington 1100?

    I would nickel plate it. Maybe hard chrome.

    I simply used paste wax...held up just fine...added a coat from time-to-time. Use common sense about exposure to moisture and keep the gun in good shape. More and more are finding that stripping and polishing out receivers on 1100s and 870s makes an attractive gun...especially with decent stock (Jack West a possibility) and barrel in good shape. Regards, Ed

    One of the guys at our club has one and he puts nothing on it. It has been over a year and still looks great

    You can have the receiver professionally Cerakote it for less than $100 by Kentucky Gun Coating.

    Cerakote is more durable than any other finishes twice the price.
