Default Anyone ever refinish a barrel?

The shotgun I have has some bad surface rust on the barrel, some on the bolt, and the shell catcher. The bolt is just the side, and the shell catcher shouldnt be a problem.

The barrel is currently blued. I got a kit for Christmas to refinish the barrel. I am just worried about the bluing. It says to strip it the parts that you are working on, but its the entire barrel. It has a bottle of bluing agent as well. Here's what the kit looks like.



Anyone have experience with this?

Cold bluing doesn't give good results. Get it parkerized or duracoated

I tried the same kit but had a tough time getting an even finish over the whole barrel. It looked very blotchy so I ended up getting a new barrel.

Where would I take a barrel to get parkerized? Duracoated? I can disassemble and prep.

I have had good results refinishing rifles with cold bluing kits. It has been about 17 years since I did one last but the finish still looks good. I only have experience with doing the whole gun and not just spots, but I would figure it would not be easy to match the new to the old. I like the DIY aspect of doing your own gunsmithing and refinishing as long as you know what you are doing but it isn't for everyone.

From a quick google here are two places in Wisconsin.

Jim's Gun Supply - Offering Custom DuraCoat Firearm Refinishing

Lauer Custom Weaponry: DURACOAT & CAMOPAKS




Give me a day or two and I'll find out where my Sgt and one of my co-workers got their Mossberg and Berretas done because they were both very happy with the quality and pricing.

Ill have to shoot him an email. Woodstock isnt too far from me currently.

The more I look at parkerized stuff, the more I like that as well.

Topping this post.

I was looking for replacement barrels cause I want this gun to be finished and looking/shooting damn good. Its sentimental value has skyrocketed for me.

After looking at this place, and seeing it should only be $50ish to duracoat a barrel, thats a better deal than at least $90 for a new barrel.

I havent contacted the place yet, but I was thinking about doing the prep myself. Has anyone prepped for any kind of coating? The surface rust on the barrel is pretty extensive.

If it is pitted there may be nothing you can do. We'd really need to know the condition right now. It's basically like anything though. Go from least aggressive and work your way up until it is removed
