Case Color Hardening or Color Case Hardening: The Firing Pin, L.L.C. uses traditional (w/Bone and Wood Charcoal) to accomplish this task. Case Color Hardening has been around for centuries, however it is not known for how long. We do know that by Case Color Hardening a receiver or frame you get beautiful colors! A good Case Color Hardening can result in beautiful molten blues, greens, browns, purples, reds, and even grays. The colors themselves are perishable both from direct sun light and wear. I would recommend that you don't handle it roughly and that you don't leave it exposed in direct sunlight for extended periods of time, therefore, I offer a protective finish either in glossy or satin finish.

The Firing Pin, L.L.C. only uses traditional (w/Bone and Wood Charcoal), and is an extensive process to under take to obtain beautiful colors. Color Case Hardening can be done on single and double barrel shotgun receivers, and some lever action rifles. Also other parts can be Case Colored as well such as levers, screws, trigger guards etc. All or some of these task may be involved.
