  • Our mission is the preservation, restoration and refinishing of firearms.
  • To bring about the "look" the way it was done during the original manufacturing process.
  • We currently use the two basic types of Parkerizing: Manganese Phosphate and Zinc Phosphate.
  • To give you the best quality product in the shortest amount of time.
  • To make your firearm look and appear brand new.
  • To give your firearm a better appearance and better wear resistance than black paint and bluing.
  • Parkerizing is also a great choice for hunting type firearms.
  • To become the "One Stop Shop" for all your refinishing needs from the metal to the wood and even parts as well as "Build-Ups."

Parkerizing Colors

The greenish or brownish hue sought by many collectors is a result of oxidation and long term storage. Dirt, Humidity, Cosmoline and Solvents as well as other factors played a part in giving the firearm its distinct hue of green or brown.

Due to different manufacturing and heat treating techniques, the final color may vary slightly. The "Temper" of the metal plays a major role in the color of the final finish as well as many other factors.  One persons definition of a color may vary from another persons definition, so please keep this in mind. Great care has been taken to keep the colors constant and as close to the original finish as possible.  So because of the above mentioned traditionally Zinc Phosphate will come out Gray to Dark Gray; Manganese Phosphate will come out Dark Gray to Black.

  • Manganese coatings normally finish a dark gray to black that can be "Blackened," "Greened" or "Browned."
  • Zinc coatings normally finish a charcoal gray to dark gray that can be "Blackened," "Greened" or "Browned."
  • In most cases firearms will be disassembled, cleaned (As Needed), bead blasted, cleaned again, parkerized and reassembled. Additional or extra fees may apply.
  • Firearms are shipped FedEx, UPS or US mail. (All ATF and carriers shipping regulations apply.)
  • Shipping costs may vary.
  • Indiana sales/use tax (7%)may apply.
  • * A great way to cut down on the final cost is: customer drop off and pickup (Please Call First), a "cleaned" weapon and a "disassembled" weapon.*
