New to this great site! My Father-in-law has a Ruger M77 with the low-glare stainless finish. We are puting a muzzlebreak on it and would, obviously, like it to match. Having trouble finding a way to match this rare color. Any suggestions?
Brownells sells oven cure finishes and one of the colors is "stainless steel gray". The description says it's supposed to be a very good match for bead blasted matte stainless guns, hence the name. Might be worth a look, and it's only about $15 a can.
Dura Coat might be another option if you aren't opposed to a coating type finish. Through experience I can tell you the Duracoat is more durable, but a little more involved to apply. Not difficult though. If you call Lauer directly you might get a decent color match right off the bat. They offer MANY colors.
