    go to www.artsgunshop.com Art Isaacson is the premier Browning guy in the States. He's done a couple for me at about $500.00 for a complete solder job.

    Art reworked my 1968 Superposed Trap. He did'nt touch the rib, but the total work was around $400 to reweld some hairline cracks, fix a loose forearm and new springs. I caught him during his busy time and it took 6 weeks. He even met me during a road trip to save me the shipping.

    regards,

    Simmons does that stuff all the time- you will have to wait but I think they are $350 and that includes a barrel reblue

    PS- there is really no way to do it without reblueing the barrel
