It would have to go to an FFL. Try www.shuffsparkerizing.com

If he's doing award winning, unduplicatable work for big time collectors, I would assume he has the FFL and some pictures of his work and a mail box.
I guess I will just have to experiment for myself

Or try one of the many other options suggested in this thread?
Hundreds of threads mentioning Shuffs, and CMP Custom shop IIRC offers it, CID as well?

Just so you know, it's virtually, no, completely, impossible to match the original Parkerizing color on a 1903A3 receiver. It's unique. And, most of the other metal parts were blued. So, completely Parkerizing a 1903A3 will result in a rifle that only resembles a rebuilt A3 and nothing close to original.

Award winning? I didn't know they gave awards for Parkerizing. True collectors don't have collectable weapons re-finished because, when you do, they are no longer collectable weapons....... just common refinished ones. Parkerizing done right isn't rocket science. Right solution concentration, right temperature, right amount of soak time. The prep work is far more important than the soak in the tank. Screw that up and you hose the whole operation before you even get started. If you don't have the proper tools to do the prep don't bother even trying to get a good finished product.

Do it yourself hebes. I've done 4 myself, and if I can, anyone can. Only error was did slide and frame of one at different time, and had mis-labeled some mixed Park juice (part Manganese, part Zinc - whick DID give grayish-green finish on another piece, btw). I got a correct Charcoal slide, and [greenish incorrect] frame (which came out perfect for USGI hardware - on a non-USGI piece, of course).

And I don't have blast cabinet; used Dremel with buff wheel - disintegrates on use, leaving 'blast-like' finish, even in recesses.

Stovetop Park makes less mess than mac n cheese too. Got plenty of both left; 1 gal sealed; PM if interested.

Some pics from another pc later here.

The award winning part was hyperbole. And not everything collectors collect is collectable.
