Color Caseharden

Post by Benchloader » Fri Jan 10, 2020 11:21 am

Want to have the Receiver Cover of my H001 Color Casehardened; but no idea where/whom to send it to.

Any helpful suggestions appreciated.

Welcome to the forum from CT, Benchloader. As far as I know, the receiver covers on H001 rifles aren't a candidate for CCH treatment. They can be stripped and painted, though, which several members have done with great success.

Welcome to the forum. The H001 receiver cover is made of zamac and can not be case hardened.
