I've got a tikka varmint that I keep having a small rust issue with. I keep it clean and oiled, yet this gun seems to keep picking up a speck here and there. I would really like an anodized finish like my black guns. never had any issues with them, really haven't had any issues with any of my other blued guns either.
what cost effective coatings are available to me? I looked at hydro dipping, definitely not my thing. Cerakote? Parkerizing? how effective is painting with products designed for metal?
I went to the local gun shops and there are only 2 people in the area that they could refer me to, but they only do hydro dipping. Looked on the web and not really finding what I want.
any suggestions, companies you have used? any info would be helpful as this is my first venture into dealing with recoating a firearm.
