French Gray Finish on Contender Frame - This is the price for doing the frame only and includes disassembly and re-assembly. If you would also like to French Gray finish a barrel, See Below. Our French Gray finish is a soft looking, hard gray-metal finish which is superior to stainless steel in its corrosion resistance, wear ability, and operational "slickness". We apply this finish to blue steel gun parts-cannot be applied to stainless steel.. About 4-6 weeks turnaround! (Please note: Due to the permanent assembly of the switchable firing pin in the hammer, we leave the hammer and trigger black when doing Contender and G2 frames). We've done our French Gray Finish on all types of firearms from handguns to long guns. For more information about this process, visit our French Gray Home Page.
