I have read to obtain a green/gray pantina to the metal, oil or cosmoline (MIL-C-11796C Class 3) was added to the phosphate solution.
Have you had any experience with this?
Several years ago I had a company refinish a M1 Carbine and an Australian L1A1 in green/gray and was very pleased with the results.

As a positive marketing tool, a photo of one of your refinished L1A1's would be appriciated.
For me a successful job the most important part is the prep work and fresh parkerizing solution each time. Iíll get some pics up soon Iím on the range today with my PD.
