Long Gun Refinishing. From a deep lustrous blue to matt dark blue hunting gun type finishes. All hot tank blued professionally by a Master bluing gunsmith. Wood restoration prices (including checkering) will be quoted after examination. Usually $100 - $250...
Prices include disassembly, stripping old bluing, polishing or glass beading/sand blasting, prepping properly, hot tank bluing, reassembly. Tax and shipping are extra. I highly recommend shipping in a hard case as you will be more sure of getting it back looking great :) If your gun is heavily pitted, cost will be higher. Minor surface rust removal is OK and is included :) Shipping back to you by Expedited Parcel Post/signature/insurance is usually in the $40 range.
And here you'll see some examples of Jim's extraordinary work :)
