    I have a 1976, 1 of 5, Bicentennial Mod 12 with some gold enlays that has rust on the frame. Any recommendations for rebluing? Want it to match the original Winchester bluing.

    Wrights advertises that they use the original Winchester formula. They did one for me and it came out very nice. Simmons might be another choice.

    Wrights is the place to go. The owner of Simmons is not the friendlist guy to do business with. Times have changed at Simmons I used them often over the years but not anymore. Just my opnion others may vary.

    Some Post-64 Winchesters take on a plum color when reblued outside the factory.
