835 Refinish


Copper BB
I have one of the first 835 that came out in the beginning. I've installed a black synthetic stock and forearm on it. At the time I was told you could do a matte finish only on the barrel. I would like to refinish the barrel and receiver in black matte for waterfowl hunting. Any suggestions? Would a gunsmith be able to do this?
You could do rattle can if you're comfortable going that route or duracoat or cerakote either yourself or have it done professionally. If you have the space and are at all handy, it can be done on ones own.

I have an 835 that was made in the last few or several years. Both the barrel and receiver are matte finished from the factory.

And welcome to Mossberg Owners!
