View Full Version : Finishes: refinishing stainless steel?
I'm thinking about buying one of the DSArms US made stainless steel cocking handle assemblies. This would be to reduce my foreign parts count and get rid of a part that looks bad. How does stainless steel respond to parkarizing or other types of refinishing when compared to the rest of the STG-58 rifle? Will it match when I refinish everything? I don't want everything to match except one lone part. Thanks in advance.

quality stainless steel does not accept parkerizing or bluing. You can use a black oxide which reacts to the chromium rather than carbon, or a sprayed on/baked polymer coating.
