    Specifically, I'm wondering about those infamous "turn lines" that, should I obtain a blued firearm without a turn line, I immediately cause one to appear.

    Being something of a revolver noob, I note that nearly any blued cylinder will get marked with the possible exception of properly timed Colt SAAs and clones (ironically, the firearms most obsessed over in re: "being turned").

    Anyhow, anybody tried refinishing a revolver in PVD? Would PVD or something similar allow for people like me to still shoot the snot out of revolver yet have it stay "looking good"?

    I'm not particularly troubled by turn lines but am rather curious about some of those "miracle finishes" out there...

    Check out Cerakote. It's a ceramic finish with a good rep for hardness and durability, even on semi auto rifles after a lot of cycling. Two of the best places I know of offering it are Accurate Plating & Weaponry and Larson Tactical.

    I've been wanting to get a tuned up GP100 or Bisley done in Cerakote, but with upcoming kids birthdays and Christmas, it'll likely have to wait until next year. ;)
