Definitely go with the parkerized aka carbon steel mode. It is superior for this purpose vs the stainless one There seems to be more of a machining issue with the stainless versions, They don't seem to be a refined as the parkerized version.

Stainless steel parts will not take a parkerized finish. It does not work on aluminum parts either. In addition, the rough surface finish of parkerizing is not suitable for some parts such as some magazines that need a smooth interior (remember the Military Beretta M9 mags from the late 90's-early 2000s Here's a segment on Bear Creek Arsenals Stainless steel vs Parkerized barrels.

Parkerizing is a method of protecting a steel surface from corrosion and increasing its resistance to wear through the application of a chemical phosphate conversion coating.Parkerizing is usually considered to be an improved zinc or manganese phosphating process, and not to be an improved iron phosphating process, although some use the term parkerizing as a generic term for applying. Trusted by America's enlisted men and women to protect our country's interests at home and abroad, Check-Mate magazines are typically manufactured from durable steel with either a parkerized or natural stainless finish. Their 1911 magazines are available with removable bases or welded GI-style steel bases
Stainless is better than a phosphated coating. Parkerization is only a surface treatment while the properties of stainless is a property of the entire steel gun. A parkerized coating depends on applying a light layer of oil for corrosion resistance. Without oil, the pebbly surface actually holds moisture and helps bring on corrosion Of coure Parkerized is definately more durable than the blued but my personal choice has been stainless. cointoss2 shooter22 *TFF Staff* Posts: 897 (2/8/02 5:27:28 pm) Reply Re: Stainless or Parkerized-----I have heard that the parkerized still wears kind badly.

Parkerizing is a chemical process using a low strength acid combined with either Manganese (usually WWII up to summer of 1944 and then again on all post war new production) or Zinc ( summer of 1944 to end of WWII and post war rebuilds). The metal is media blasted and then submerged in the acid bath at about 180 degrees The properties of stainless steel make it easier for manufacturers to work with, and by skipping the chrome lining they are able to finish the bore and the rifling with a higher level of consistency. Stainless steel also offers some corrosion protection as well. When you want the highest in accuracy afforded by the AR15 platform, go stainless Gun Parkerizing helps protect a steel surface from corrosion and increases its resistance to nicks and scratches by the submersion of the steel into a phosphoric acid solution. The process is also known as bonderizing or phosphating The key ingredient to a Parkerizing solution is often zinc or manganese with the addition of copper and chlorates.

Parkerized finishes come from an old military finishing process. It's a pretty durable finish, that's impervious to most solvents, it's hard to scratch off (but it CAN come off), and it gives it a nice matte finish that's non-reflective.
