Darin Reiss Posted May 29, 2004 Report Share Posted May 29, 2004 I am looking at an old Pre Sample M1A1 Savage that has a DEFINITE brown patina to it. The steel looks good and with no pitting, at least I can't see any in the pictures. I thought if I bought it that I would manganese phosphate it myself as I have done other SMG's but I believe the correct finish for WWII for these is Du-Lite. I have a Savage 1928A1 and M1A1 already that have the Du-Lite finish. Any thoughts on how these two finishes compare would be appreciated! I understand from Tom Hoel that PK in CO can do original Du-Lite refinishing. Thanks, Darin Reiss DR MFG Haysville, KS FFL 07/SOT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
