    See Doug Braker (Dr, Gun) on this site .

    If it,s a trap gun or a work gun ask Doug about Coatings instead . They look very good and out last Blue by four to one .

    I have had Glenrock Blue do some work for me, it was excellent.

    If Doug's bluing is as good as his other work it will be excellent too. He has some other repair work for me but not bluing.

    Click the above.

    They do and have done all my Perazzi bluing for years. 100% satisfied to the point I have listed them on my website.

    I would think that someone who can do something like this would know a thing or two about reblueing a gun..... of course, that's just MY opinion......

    Glenrock Bluing has done many guns for me over the years and their quality is excellent. Bluing is what they do and is not a side job. You will be very very plesed with their quality, service and competitive pricing.

    Actually, the work on thatLeFever A Grade .410 bore receiver is known as "bone charcoal color case hardening".

    This photo was taken from the website posted above, as the best example I have ever seen of modern "color case hardening".

    I'd say this guy seems to know what he is doing......

    The wife and I just had a tour of Turnbull Restoration in Bloomfield, NY on Monday. Doug Turnbull and his employees have to be by far, the leaders in quality restorations. We saw all sorts of work being preformed on both standard quality guns and VERY HIGH END vintage relics. The craftsmanship of those people is unbelievable, great !!!

    They are having a huge addition added to the existing building, and it should be finished in a month or so and at that time they are planning an open house event for all to see...This new place will have a beautiful showroom, conference room, and everything one would want when looking into quality repairs and restorations.
