Custom Parkerizing Includes:

  • Full tech inspection to assure the firearms safety and function.   DGR gages and records all critical measurements on a rifle before other work is started.  This tech inspection informs our customer of what is worn and to what degree.  This gives the customer a clear picture of the condition of their firearm and allows them to make important decisions regarding what parts if any should be replaced.  The tech report has also become a selling tool.  People who have sold DGR re-built rifles have included the tech report, which gave the person purchasing the rifle a clear understanding of what they were getting.

  • Meticulous metal preparation prior to the Parkerizing process.   To assure proper coverage when Parkerizing, each and every part needs to be clean and free of all grease or oils.  Each part is cleaned in a parts washer, rinsed in hot water and dried with compressed air.  A clean, (lightly oiled) patch is then run through the bore before the bore is plugged for the Parkerizing process. 

  • Removing burs from screws and metal parts.  This might be one of the most distinguishing aspects of DGR’s Parkerizing.  Most other companies just apply a new finish to old parts without first removing noticeable dings and burs.  You end up with an old part that has a new finish, but still looks old from the dings and burs. DGR takes the needed time to polish and re-shape all parts to assure the parts look as close to new as possible before Parkerizing.  This is one reason why customers tell us our Parkerizing is unmatched in the industry.

  • Genuine, Mil-Spec Parkerizing of all metal, following the time-honored, government armory process that meets MIL-SPEC STND –171.  Stainless steel parts, springs, and barrel bores will not be parkerized.   (Please note that stainless steel metal such as the gas cylinder system on the M1 will not Parkerize.  These parts are finished with a closely matching baking lacquer.)  Manganese phosphate, (Parkerizing) offers excellent rust and wear resistance when used as a final finish.  It is non-reflective, wears well, and due to its oil/lubricant trapping ability, is outstanding in inclement weather.

Note:  The gas cylinder, lock and screw on the M1 Garand are treated with a baked-on black or gray lacquer at no extra charge.

  • DGR disassembles all parts for proper Parkerizing.  This is important for proper finishing.  We have seen where others have not completely disassembled the rifle, causing some areas not to have complete coverage.  This can cause these parts/areas to rust.  This is a common practice with trigger groups, butt plates and many other parts that can be disassembled.  The pictures below are a few examples of others work we have seen over the years.  (Rest assured, you will not get this type of poor workmanship from DGR!)

  • The parts on your rifle belong to you.  Unless you instruct us to replace parts, you will get your original parts back. 

Note:  If you do NOT wish the letters and numbers highlighted, please let us know in advance.

 Wood Finishing Includes:

We offer two types of hand rubbed oil finishes:

Type 1 Finish - Fancy Finish - Used most often on Extra Fancy Grade stocks, birch stock sets or custom built rifles. This is a shiny oil finish that truly brings out the color and figure in the wood.  DGR finishes these stocks set down to 600 grit to allow the depth of the wood to come out.

Type 2 Finish - Un-issued/Original Finish - Used most often when the wood has never been sanded before, does not have deep dents that require filler. This finish was developed to look like the finishes found on original issue stock sets. The finish is smooth like the type 1, but duller.  DGR finishes these stock sets to 220 grit.

  • Painstaking preservation of all cartouches and/or other markings.

  • Raising all dings or dents that can be raised through conventional means.

  • Epoxy filling of deep gouges as per government rebuild practice.

  • Micro wood finishing.

  • Military-spec stock stain

  • Custom hand-rubbed oil finish where several coats are used, so the drying process takes much longer than that of other commercially available stocks.  The results are a more attractive stock with a longer lasting finish.
