Just picked up a Savage 99F for an extremely low cost, 1950's gun with lever safety, 300 Savage. Great bore and wood, tight action, outer metal is overall lightly pitted , flecking everywhere else, blue largely gone from the lower receiver, case coloring largely gone from lightly pitted and flecked lever . Plan to use this gun as a active hunter, and retire my other 99s that still retain most or all the original finish. Question, will parkarized do a better job of "hiding" the pitting compared to hot bluing? I don't have any issues about how the parkarized finish will look, or effecting any collectors value...what little it may have.
