The 982 has a parkerized finish. It's comparable to the parkerize finish on a Mossberg 590 but not as nice as the finish on a 870P.
Soak the parkerized finish in oil and let it sit for a couple of days. It will make it more durable and rust resistant. Heat it with a hair dryer to speed up the process.
