    Hard to say, why is it being reblued, was it abused? Left to rust, or needed something resoldered or otherwise repaired? If the gun hasn't been beat I would think the price is fair.

    Big dave the blueing was just normal handling no rust . They are just trying to make it look new.

    Why not buy the gun "as is" and get a discount cause they are saving re-blue expenses?

    Hey Nailer if you want to learn how to take the stock off the Browning let me know, seriously though ( about the Gold Inlays on the browning ) I have done Many many guns of my own and many more for Friends with a Gold replacement Kit that is available fron Brownells called Bonanza Gold it is very simple to Use, probaly Barrock A-BOMB-A could do it, it comes with simple instructions and consist of only 3 parts a cleaner ( which is also a sealer ) and a liquid base and a container of Gold dust, the only thing you have to do when you order it is -- order extra cleaner, the amount that comes with the kit is never enough, I always run out of it and still have a lot of the other two elements left, I have done guns for friends 25 years ago and the gold inlays still look good, just make sure that if you use it only put it into the recesses that you want it in because it is do fine that it will get into any amall crackes or places that you may not want it, that is another reason to have extra cleaner to clean it off of where you dont want it.

    Thanks drhuner I forgot to say that they are going to plate the receiver in silver will this be a problem with the gold cleaner . i think the gold on the silver would look great.

    Nailer I just noticed what Calvin said above and he is right, the Gold scripting will be lost and the gold inlay that i spoke of above is only for impressions ( things that are cut or etched into the Metal )
