It is a method of protecting steel from corrosion through the means of a phosphate coating.

You will see it on a lot of military surplus, like the M1 Garand and M1 Carbine.

Sounds like a good plan. Why aren't they all parkerezied? Nobody likes corrosion.

It's just one type of finish. It is usually used on military weapons, because it is inexpensive. It doesn't look as nice as a good high gloss bluing job and it isn't as corrosion resistant either.

Phosphate process is just not as good as bluing. It does an adequate job in the Oil & Gas Industry but not so hot when used on firearms.
