Default Parkerizing?

Does anybody here do Parkerizing or know a place that does reasonably?

What are you looking to get done? Have you considered doing it yourself? Depending on what it is, I may be willing to take some of your hard earned money.

I know CCR has a parkerizing process that looks good in the pix. Been toying with sending them my no-name 1911 to get it done...

I have sent a number of items to this place and Brian did an outstanding job of parkerizing for a very reasonable price. Not sure if he still does this type of work though. Send him an email or give him a call to discuss your needs. One heck of a nice guy to deal with IMO.

I'm thinking of having my M1917 parked or coated. I sent an email to Brad & Mary at CCR last night.

After shooting with the Daggle and mrm14, I want to improve my old friend a bit. I'm also considering installing a Huber Concepts trigger and a Bell & Carlson stock.

The M1917 is my keeper long distance rifle. An improved trigger will help me be a bit more accurate with it. The refinish and stock is just for ego. Although the stock may make a difference, I don't know.

I've got next to nothing invested in it and I think that I want to upgrade it a bit. As it is, it shoots more accurately than I do, but better is better.

Don, I have the B&C stock on one of my Sporterized 1917's and love it (for a scoped rifle). It has an odd drop but for scoped use it really helps keep it in line.

Painted mine with "Coyote" Aluma Hyde2. The 30 minute refinishing job (plus 2 weeks of dry time). Ha.

Thanks for the heads up M14. I'm going to keep the Buehler mount and rings that are on it. I'm also going to keep the Nikon 3-9x40 scope.

I ordered the black B&C stock from Midway. I'll probably send it to CCR for the Parkerizing Plus finish and have Brad install the Huber trigger while he's at it.

I would use Cerama Coat and finish it myself to save some money, but the barreled receiver won't fit in the oven to bake.

BTW, is Dura Coat a bake on finish or air dry? If it's air dry, I might do it myself to save some dough.
