What finish is this Remington 870, matte or parkerized? Or do I need better pics?

I wanted to change the barrel to match my receiver but I wanted to make sure of the finish first.

Better pictures please.

Also matte what? Matte describes the appearance of the finish.

the 870P (Police) is the only model 870 that comes parkerized from the factory.

It's the factory Satin Powder Coating.

As said above, Parkerizing only comes on the Police line.

The factory "matte" finish is not parkerizing and will rust easily---BreakFree CLP has kept my guns rust-free fo decades!
