    I'm looking to get the slide and receiver of my Kel-Tec P3AT refinished (due to holster wear) and eventually my Remington 870P. Those of you who have had your firearm(s) refinished and carry them and/or are hard on them, what do you prefer/recommend? I only want to do this once smile.gif

    Baked-on coating of your choice over Parkerizing (phosphate).

    If you want a spray on finish Norrell's Moly resin is the toughest.
