Default ruger m77 color?

Hey everyone,

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?

Thanks!

Bead blasting the brake will probably come pretty close to matching. The best way to get it to match perfectly would be to re-bead blast the whole gun with the brake.

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.
