This is my only shotgun
It is an 1987 - 870 Wingmaster

It needs a new coating.

Parkerizing was the coating of choice back a while .

Now there is some new stuff but the cost is more than what I paid FOR THE SHOTGUN .
Thanks

Glad you are satisfied. Let us know what the cost and turnaround time was when you are done. W.B. does a lot of Gov't work.

Birdsong coatings are IMHO the best of the polymer type coatings. If it doesn't have to be black, Robar NP3 is a plated finish that is MUCH more durable than any polymer coating. The color is kind of a lead grey.

Robar NP3

If you have a favorite vendor and don't mind passing it along

I got the Birdsong 870 back today

He is the best to deal with.
It is as nice as anyone would expect (Including the Military)

I will post some pisc soon.

Shipped as promised ,turnaround 90 days

I had it done in Green T and let the company design it

The fixtures are black

Those who want a nice looking coating and functional shotgun or any weapon,I would recommend Birdsong .
If you need to see pics I can e-mail them now ,if needed.


Thanks to all who helped me here ,I am very Happy

Look forward to the pics. I have a pistol with Black-T finish and it is a very nice coating.

I have a Wilson SGT 870 which has their ArmorTuff coating. Been through matches, training, etc and has held up well and very easy to clean/maintain.
