Polishing and Bluing
The Original Equipment Manufacturers finish. Just like GunBlack did for Ithaca Gun from 1987 to 2004. Our Hot Blue process is the same process used by original gun manufacturers. We first prep the steel to remove any small scratches, light rust and blemishes in the surface before bluing. Our work is checked and rechecked by all our techs during every step of the reblue process. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Blast and Parkerizing
Barrels requiring a matte parkerized finish get stripped and bead blasted before coating to give a uniform, non-reflective, medium dark gray finish. Parkerizing is the preferred finish for military ordinance and law enforcement with superior corrosion resistant properties. Parkerizing or Manganese Phosphate, is a more durable coating than stands up to the harsh conditions that a firearm is subjected to. Bead blasting is an excellent way to remove scratches and rust and hide dings in the guns steel components and provides and excellent surface for the Parkerize coating. Please note that stainless steel components will not accept parkerize coating.
Repair work and gunsmithing on site
Custom restoration for antiques/collectibles. Heirlooms reborn for gifting to grandchildren. GunBlack has gunsmithing on-site for repair work on all makes and models of guns. We have decades of experience. We take great pride in refinishing people’s favorite hunting tool. It is even more special to refurbish a family heirloom that can be handed down from parents to children and grandparents to grandchildren. Custom restoration of antiques and collectibles are also available.
This was a specialty project we did to restore a 75mm Howitzer cannon for a VFW in Houma, LA. We sand blasted and parkerized the barrel and breach, with components, to bring the weapon back to its original ordinance finish. They now display the cannon in front of their building and fire blank rounds during ceremonial occasions. With our 8′ Parkerizing tanks, long heavy barrels like these are no problem. Do you have a special piece of ordinance or antique that you would love to refurbish for display? Give us a call for consultation. Special thanks to the folks at G503.com for the pics of the assembled cannon!
