It cost's in and around $200 canadian to have it stripped, parked and then GunKoted. I think it was actually $180.
The gunkote is extremely durable and the parkerizing takes away any worries about rust. I just got tired of having to clean the gun within minutes of shooting it to keep the rust away. Being in Ontario, Our weather is always at the extreme. It's either blazing hot and humid or -25C. If it's not raining. So it was a no brainer that it was worth the money.
I have made a few changes for this years season, 20" RS barrel. BigHead safety...A must with gloved hands.
