Firearm bluing is a traditional metal finishing method primarily used to protect firearms from corrosion while providing an attractive appearance. This method involves application of a thin layer of oxide on the surface of the metal components. This layer of oxide, often a dark blue or black color, acts as a protective barrier against rust and wear. While this method does not offer the same level of durability as modern coatings such as Cerakote, bluing is appreciated for its classic aesthetic appeal and historical significance in gunsmithing. Contact one of our team members to see how Recon Rifleworks can assist in your fire restoration project.


Parkerizing is a metal finishing process, commonly used to protect firearms and other equipment from corrosion. named after its developer, this method involves immersing metal parts in a phosphoric acid solution, and through the chemical process creates a protective coating. This coating, typically a dull gray or matte finish, enhances resistance to rust and wear. This method is widely used for its practical benefits rather than aesthetic considerations. This method has found a wider use in military applications. We specialize in caring for and restoring World War I and Wolrd War II weapons !

Hydrographics / Water Transfer Printing (COMING SOON!)

Hydrographics, also known as water transfer printing, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. It involves placing a specialized film with the desired pattern on water, activating it, and then dipping an object into the water to transfer the print. This technique is often used for customizing items like automotive parts, sporting goods, and electronics. This method is commonly used in the firearms industry to apply various camp patterns to firearms and accessories. 

Anodizing (COMING SOON!)

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that enhances the corrosion resistance and durability of metals, typically aluminum. It involves immersing the metal in an electrolyte bath and passing an electric current through it. This forms an oxide layer on the metal's surface, creating a protective coating. Anodizing is commonly used to improve the aesthetics and functionality of aluminum products, providing a range of colors and increased resistance to wear and corrosion.

Gold & Nickle Plating (COMING SOON!)

Gold plating and nickel plating are electroplating processes often applied to firearms for various reasons.

Gold plating involves depositing a thin layer of gold onto the firearm's surface through electroplating. This not only enhances the aesthetics, giving a luxurious appearance, but also provides some corrosion resistance. However, gold plating is generally more susceptible to wear than some other finishes.

Nickel plating, on the other hand, involves depositing a layer of nickel onto the firearm. This process can improve durability, corrosion resistance, and offer a sleek, silver-like appearance. Nickel-plated firearms are often chosen for their aesthetic appeal and resistance to rust and tarnish.

Both plating methods serve not only cosmetic purposes but also contribute to the longevity and protection of the firearm's surface. The choice between gold and nickel plating depends on personal preference, style, and the desired level of durability.
