There are nice coatings that do a good job but they can't protect the bore, so for Alaska
I would look for a stainless action,a stainless barrel and eather a high end composite or
a good laminate stock. also a good stainless trigger like the Jewel.
There is no such thing as a weather proof rifle only a weather resistant one.
I have stainless barrels that were coated for looks but the stainless is the real protection.
In severe weather I use a finger glove over the muzzle whether it is chrome molly or
