French Gray Finish on an Encore Frame - This is the price for doing the frame only and includes disassembly and re-assembly. 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. We've done our French Gray Finish on all types of firearms from handguns to long guns.
