    I decided to put a vent rib on M12 3" duck gun. I intended to have Simmons put the rib on and have the gun blued by Wright's who I have used in the past and do excellent work. I talked with Larry at Simmons and it is the same price if they blue the gun or not. Since I will not save any money by Simmons not bluing the gun I may let them blue it. I am looking for opinions on bluing done by Simmons. Thanks

    I just got a Model 42 back from having a rib installed. Their bluing looks great. I would not hesitate to have them blue the gun.

    I presently own 3 guns that have Simmon's Ribs installed on them (all blued by them). An 1100/410, a Mod. 12, and a Daly O/U. The 410 was done about 1974. I have shot all three guns extensively and they all still look great. Don't worry--have them blue it.

    Simmons blueing done 35 years ago...still as new and gun has been shot and transported from coast to coast. Blueing on Beretta AL2 barrel has lasted thru 3 new receivers worn out and replaced.

    Larry just did an unsingle MX barrel for me. Cut off the old rib, installed a new one, set the pattern to 90/10, blued and returned. It's beautiful and all he said he could do and more was done. If Simmons is doing the rib, let them do the whole job, they have been at it as long as anyone in the business and know their stuff!
