Bluing & Parkerization

Firearm Bluing, Parkerization & Restoration in Harrisburg, PA

Bluing is an art. The age of the gun, materials used, and type of desired finish all must be considered before attempting a bluing job.

Bluing is an effective way to improve the cosmetic appearance of your firearms, while providing a measure of corrosion resistance to protect your guns for the long haul. It is a electrochemical conversion coating in which steel is partially protected against rust, and is named after the blue-black appearance of the resulting protective finish.
