    Probably Arts although Simmons in Kansas city would do well also

    Art's Gun Shop or Midwest Gun Works. The very best to rehab old Brownings including salt guns...

    Arts Gunshop in Hillsboro Mo. The best by far and the fastest. Great people.

    Midwest Gun Works does great work on Brownings (and other firearms).

    I would never reblue or restore my grandfathers tools or guns. Every bit of wear and every scratch was put there by him. Once that is gone, it is never the same. Just my opinion.

    I say the same thing to my customers every week. Every scratch and ding has a story. Every spot of rust from a bloody finger print tells another story.

    If you had purchased the gun in this condition, sure, go ahead and fix it up. But inheriting a gun from a family member...leave it as is.

    I have my pop's old Savage 311, .410 squirrel gun. Not a tad of original finish left and it's going to stay that way.
