    Which is better? I am debating about what finish to put on my new build. I am going with a laminate and I think either will look good. I have one rifle with a stainless tube and a black cerakote action and the cerakote has held up well but I have never seen a parkerized rifle in person. Are there any advantages for one over the other? Thanks for any replies. You all have been great in answering my questions.
