What guy?? hopefully it wasnt some garage business or a guy you found off the internet...

What gun??

who took it apart for parkerizing??

who put it back together??

why did you want it parkerized??

pics of before and after the refinishing would help.

If its been parked inside the barrel, keep shooting it that will fix the issue . However it should have been plugged before dipping . I do my own barrels and parts and I always plug the barrel and gas hole and I don't have any issues with accuracy .

Did the accuracy degrade or the functionality of the firearm overall?

Does the firearm have a magazine?

Bronco- going to close your thread and have you start over.

Your post gives us NO information to work from. Please start with WHAT GUN? What work was done, and what is the problem you are having with it. Otherwise we are guessing- and if we had ESP, we would be out buying lottery tickets.

Good questions get good answers.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
