    Click my above website link, and then click at the bottom for Gleenrock Blue.

    They did a case hardening for a customer of mine up in Wenatchee WA on a Perazzi Comp 1.

    I had never seen such a beautfiul case hardening job like that ever in my 35 years working on Perazzis. I was hoping Tim would take a photo of it and get it to me, becasue I about fell over when I got it back from the boys at Glenrock Blue. It was the dambest most beautiful job I have ever seen. Has a grayish background with all the case hardening colors coming through.

    Dumb me, I forgot to take a photo of it before I shipped the gun back to Tim.

    I used Ohio Case color for a few different projects. Some of the best work you will see. That was about 10 years ago, might check and see if they are still in business. You won`t be sorry...

    Connecticut Shotgun Mfg is a very high quality and reputable firm. They have a case hardening solution in a bottle that they sell. I know nothing about it but maybe others can add their comments on this product that would allow you to do it.

    Art's has a good reputation in general and I think I've seen them doing case coloring in one of the videos on their web site. Hit the link.

    Can alloy receivers be case colored? And will it hold up if done? Wondering about a Beretta auto receiver.
