    I recently purchased a Winchester Model 12 that I am going to be using for trapshooting beginning this season. It's in nice condition and has a Simmons 1/2" wide rib that extends all the way back over the receiver. I ordered a new set of wood for it and was thinking I'd like to have it re-blued and rejuvenated. I have been looking online for places to have the work done and have one in mind -- Boses in Nebraska. Does anyone have experience with them? Or can anyone suggest a shop based on personal experience? I want re-bluing, bead-blasting top of rib, polishing the bolt and carrier, over-all cleaning and check-up, and installation of the new forend. I'd appreciate your insight and advice. Thanks.

    Wright's blued a M12 for me several years ago and I was very pleased with the results. Stamping on the barrel looked factory fresh, the bad thing is that it looks so good I almost hate to shoot it.
