    I just picked up a Colt officers target .22 pistol and it needs a little tender love and care. The gun has some blue wear and one spot on the barrel has some light pitting so I'm looking for someone that does a good job reconditioning older pistols like mine.
    I called Colt and they won't work on it and turnbull is way to expensive for my wallet so i need some suggestions.

    Thanks
    Lee

    Good work is going to cost you some bucks regardless which outfit but I would try Glenrock Blueing. You are probably looking at about $300 to get a first rate job (and it will be first rate) but I think the gun you have merits that.

    Now my suggestion Lee is to spend the bucks and then take that fine little revolver and shoot the piss out of it and enjoy life because that is what these fine guns are for.

    check out these guys they have done great work for me -- check out their Nitre blue which is correct for that gun

    There was a dispute about the sharpness of edges when a well respected poster on here used them for his P gun receiver-to have it nickled I think.

    I have had great luck with them

    Glenrock Blue in Glenrock Wyoming is the place to have it done. Quality work and they know what they are doing. You will not be disappointed. They do a lot of work for Weatherby and have done lot of guns for me.

    Good Shooting!

    My shooting partner just had Glenrock do some work for him. Good price, excellent results, and service. He will be a repeat customer very shortly with a custom request and that price quote sounded pretty good also.
