Ned to take it down completely, springs, pins, whatever parts there are, all out, at least for the Parkerizing, and I'd suggest for the bead-blasting as well. My first active duty assignment newarly 45 years ago now was to an Army Maintenance Plant in Germany. It had a small arms shop that did complete refurbishment and refinishing on small arms, and the lads who ran the Parkerizing line were pretty intent on getting all guns completely disassembled and degreased before they went into their tanks.hey all, i got a buddy with an old blued steel pistol than he wants to have parkerized. parkerizing is easy but we'd have to have a guy in a local shop do the bead blasting. i was just curious, do i need to COMPELTELY take down the pistol, so there is absolutely nothing in the slide or frame, or can i simply remove the slide, take out the barrel and do the frame and slide like that? thanks!
