Matte refinishing

Postby DuckManClyde » Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:07 pm

Well, last weekend i saw my gun take a beatin ( mud, rain, scratches, you know, the usual duck hunting guns life ) anyways i thought i could keep my o/u nice and was clearly wrong. The matte finish has scratches along the bottom of the barrel and heres the best part :sarcmark: That day i found 3 spots where light rust is taking form, naturally i cleaned it like crazy. But another year or 2 and i wont be able to look at it. Is there a way i can get the matte finish removed then replaced with blueing? :help:

Have it parkerized, then Teflon coated. Problem solved.

Its happening faster than i anticipated, cleaned it, put it away. two weeks later ( last friday ) Its got rust 1/2 way up the barrel rib, under barrel and the safety. :no: Its getting dipped with the first 200 bucks i get. Now i just need to deside on a pattern. Go conventional with a MAX4 or get something more unique. :huh:

Conventional equals higher resale later down the road

Why not look at CeraKote? It is roughly the same price and is very durable.

Yes, any gunsmith who does bluing can polish and blue the steel on your gun.

Use this Rusteprufe oil every time you put your gun away and it will not rust. Inside this jar is a thick felt pad you pour the liquid into. the small pc of chamous on the top sucks this oil into it. Wipe your guns down every time you get back home. REMEMBER these are "Working Guns" not show pcs. :yes:.. They will get wear and tear on them. It's more important that the gun functions correctly than how pretty the gun looks... :fingerpt:

Yes, it is. But many of us....including the OP....also care about the appearance of our firearms.

Given the choice between a worn/torn/rusty gun that works every time and a cared-for gun in excellent condition that works every time....and I know which category I'd prefer my gun to be in.

Blueing will not stop rust/corrosion if it is subjected to the same conditions as you've described.

Cerakote (properly applied) will likely provide the greatest protection barrier and as it comes in a huge selection of colors, you may well find one that suits.

Have several finished (cerakote) in "armorer's black" and it is really pleasing to the eye whilst holding the weapon in the blind, between flights.

Life is too short to hunt with an ugly shotgun.
