I'm a lefty, therefore my options in the autoloader arena are small, I have an old h and k superblack eagle ( black) that the action us still sound, but the metal is slightly rusted and worn in almost every area where there is metal except the bolt of the action. I've seen at gander mountain they offer some ( tuff recoating) or something of the likes. Any know anything about this? Worth it? Cost? I have to do something with it, it gets a little worse every year. All opinions and comments welcomed

Look into Robar, you may find that their Rogard in a Matt finish or their Poly-T2 finish will be what you want on your SBE when duck hunting.

I have a SBE that had worn the finish and was rusty. I hunt waterfowl on the Chesapeake bay, rust is a given. I sent the gun to be teflon coated, four years ago. The gun has had no rust issues since.  I used Black Ice Coatings but I am sure their are others.

There are a bunch of coating you can have done spray painting it yourself which is cheap and quick is one option.  Duracoat is another that you can do my 1911 has a duracoat finish and it holds up fine.  Ceracoat is another that can be done but it is not a do it yourself.

The sky is the limit when it comes to coatings

Roguard is as good as anything I've seen. Not cheap but good. A friend has an 870 done up this way and it's super slick. I had them NP3 a gun and it came out great.

Black-T also is revered by some. Never have seen it.
