    Curious if anyone has used or worked with Precision Bluing in Greene, NY before. Good experiences I hope? Thanks in advance.

    No one, huh? Shoot. Oh well. They just got done reblueing my 870TB and will ship it back tomorrow. Hopefully it came out nice. Ill post pics and thoughts next week when it arrives. They said they had to blue the receiver twice, not sure why. Maybe it was too worn off.

    Hey guys. Just wanted to give my thoughts and praise for a company called Precision Bluing in Greene, NY. I sent my 870TB to them for rebluing. I disassembled it myslf ahead of time so all they had to do was blue all the parts and send it back. They received it on a Saturday. It was already done by Thursday and in the mail back to me on Friday...thats less than 1 week. Their prices are very reasonable and it came out amazing. I could not be any happier. I would definitely recommend them and use them in the future. Great people to do business with.

    I ended up getting the standard factory finish, which uses 400 grit. It was $125 for the service. Here are some pics. Sorry about the glare on the after photo. What do you think?

    thanks and I agree! Its hard to tell but you can see a little in the before pic, all the bluing was worn off on the bottom of the receiver. No rust or pitting but it was all bare metal. Looks like a new gun now.

    Wow. They did a very nice job. Thanks for sharing the photos and info. I have an 870 that could use some sprucing up.

    Yes, that price included the entire gun: receiver, barrel, trigger pins, mag cap, forearm tube, forearm nut, mag spring retainer. Only thing I didnt have done was the trigger housing since its aluminum.

    Damn Matt,

    You weren't kidding when you told me she turned out nice!

    Can't wait to see it up close.
