    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.

    Glock uses a black parkerizing on the slides of there weapons. it is just another process used to protect a firearm.
