    I am restoring a shotgun for a good friend of mine. It is a Savage model 745. This is the "humpback" browning designed shotgun manufactured in the 1940's. The receiver is in great shape other than the wear on the black aluminum finish. It has lots of engraving on it, so I don't want to see the edges/corners rounded by buffing.

    Can anyone recommend a refinishing company that does this type of anodizing? So far I have found one place, but requests to see some photos of recent work have gone unanswered to date. I know places can "do it", but this is a really dear friend of mine and I want it to look brand new (as if this gun was being restored for me). Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe the original poster is looking for a polished, anodized finish to match the original....That I do not do.

    I could black teflon the receiver but it would be a satin look.

    Ooops - I realize Gun Dr. replied and does not do that type of finish.
