Anyone know who in the Portland area can parkerize something for me?
Most any smith who does bluing. However, much easier prep, as coarse
glass beaded instead of polish. Finish applied simular to chrome plate
rather than an oxidation of blue.
Okay cool. Do you know any smiths who do bluing then?
Not in the Portland area. Try the yellow pages in local phone book.
There are two in this area. A local smith that has done several Garands
for me. Stripped down, I believe the cost was $85. A couple of parts
were tricky the first couple of times taking them apart and putting them
back together. The second a barrel maker almost to the Calif boarder.
No clue as to charges or if he only does refinsh and finish on his own
d.t.t.wife, thanks for that. i sent an email. appreciated.
I am waiting to get my FFL back and once that happens I'll be all set up to do parkerizing. BTW I'm in Salem.
