    Hey guys,

    There are a few guns running around my place that need a good parkerizing job such as a Remington 870 Express that rusts if I look at it cross-ways. I want to apply parkerization from a kit such as Lauer or but I had a question or two first.

    1.) Is the Lauer park a quality solution or is there a better product for me to look at?

    2.) Do I need to take precautionary measures to keep the parkerizing out of the barrel?

    Any input concerning my questions or park solutions in general are much appreciated!

    Ben

    I don't have any experience with the Lauer brand. I run Brownells Magnesium parkerizing solutions in the shop here. I do plug the barrels. Brownells sells bore plugs just for such purposes. Also if your 870 has a aluminum reciever you cannot parkerize aluminum.

    The Brownells solution works great, but with all finishes it may take some time to learn how to get great results. Go to Sears for rubber bore plugs.

    From Remington's website concerning the 870 express.

    Brownells here also. Have done a 1911, FAL and AR parts. All turned out very good.

    PS, as in all finishes, doing the prep work right is the key.

    Brownell's it is! Next question:

    How much of the solution do I need to get started? I noticed they had 16oz and 1gal containers. I plan on doing my 870 at some point, but I'll probably just order enough to do a couple Hi-Powers I've got first.
