Do you plan on Scuba Diving with your weapons?

Best in the business, in my opinion. I had this done to one of my 1911's and it runs like a champ now. Clean up is very easy and there is no wear on any parts.

Robar NP3 Firearms Finish

Over 240 hours of salt water spray resistant. That is pretty good for me and my uses.

No sir. Lol. I have been considering moving closer to the coast. Wondering what kind of treatment I can apply to my guns if I do so. Thanks.

James:

You do not need to do much more than to keep your guns cleaned and well oiled. If you keep your guns in an airconditioned environment, then you should be fine. If not, then you may want to increase the frequency of wiping them down with a preservative oil. You should clean and wipe down your gun after every outing in a marine evironment.

The different finishes will protect the parts coated, but what about the little parts that can't be coated like springs, firing pin, etc?

I would just go with a quality protective spray like EEZOX and diligent cleaning. I use the EEZOX, but it does have a down side. The aroma is noticeable.
