    I need a high quality source to reblue a Winchester
    Model 12 Shotgun. This is a Trap w/ a high "Money
    Maker Rib". What is the best type of bluing? I need
    a very professional person. Hope you can help.

    Thanks

    David

    Remember that the origional Mod 12 had vertical markings like fine sanding marks on the receiver flats. I would want that back. Might ask if you are interested. If you want a really polished blue, I am sure several people can make that happen.
    OH I'm not saying people other than Siommons can't do the sanding thing, I just know they do.
    No offence to anyone!
