My little Winchester pumpgun needs a rust resistant finish to protect it from heat & humidity....I like hard chrome except for the look...I've heard of black chrome...sounds cool to me Any suggestions ? :fuss:
I'd stay away from the black chrome. It does look kinda neat but its main function is to absorb heat from the sun. I have worked with it for many years on solar equipment. If the sun hits it it will get too hot to handle. I've got a lot of burns to prove it. Under the right conditions it can easily exceed 200 degrees.
Check out www.shootiniron.com. Mac has some awesome finishes in what he calls Tuff-Gun. It's a Parkerized undercoat with a special overcoat that is guaranteed to never rust again. All internals are treated, too. Great design/color schemes are available. Good luck...
I had one af my Taurus .357's done in the Black-T finish. It's your basic black color, and kinda feels/looks like a Parkerizing job, but it's a moly-coat finish. It has been very good so far, but it took 3 months to get it back. It also cost $200, which I felt was a little steep. Then again, it's got a lifetime warranty on it.
Had my Romanian SAR-1 done in Mac's Tuff-Gun and Tuff-Stock finish, and I absolutely love it! Had the tiger stripe camo pattern with urban colors. All the mags were done in the same scheme, and the stock was also done. Little pricey, but I am gonna send him more buisness because I think it's the best going. 2-week turnaround, and only 1 week if law enforcement/armed security.
Logansdad..Yup the black chrome would be hotter. It is designed to trap different wavelengths like ultraviolet and infared radiation. The blueing primarily traps the visible light spectrum. Black chrome will get surprisingly hot on even a cloudy or overcast day.
