I have a sidearm that needs refinished and have been researching it the past few days; the result, confusion! Seems that I have more choices than re-bluing, i.e. Parkerizing, Blacking.... Any recommendations?

Parkerizing, GunKote, Powdercoat and even Duracoat are all good finish's for pistols IMO. Depending on the amount use and carry vs no carry, is what I use to choose what finish I use...

^^ There are a number of finishes that are not difficult, expensive or requite special stuff. One site that you can go too is Brownells.

Weapon won't be carried or fired much. It's a family heirloom and I just want to preserve it.
