What finish do you prefer on your mg42/53

Postby Sw1ngK1ng » Wed Mar 29, 2017 12:30 am

I am almost done working out the bugs in my mg53 and Im thinking about finishes. I temporarily cold blued the bare metal for protection but it is too uneven for me lo like it. I feel like hot blue would be nice but all of work. Im probably just going to have it parkerized but I have a few questions about it. Can you get a less flat finish with parkerizing or will it always come out the same? Also will it be a bad finish for any of the internals?

I would like to hear everyones opinion on their favorite finish or combination of finishes such as a parkerized receiver and everything else blued or any other variation. Pictures would be great!

I have not done the finish on my MG42 yet. But here are my thoughts on what I'm going to do.

1st Going to park it. Using park from https://mg34.com/

2nd Spray a Dura Coat Bluing color finish on it.

That's my thoughts.
With the parking under everything everything everywhere should be covered, ie no rush problems. Then the Dura Coat bluing color to try to help make it look like the way the real MG42 looked. WW2 MG42 was normally blued with wear and spotting and rust problems.
