    Stu Wright has the correct color Winchester blueing for a M-12. Does excellent work.

    Hard for me to imagine a 16 gauge Model 12 shot enough to need rebuilding. I have several including a Skeet gun that I have shot many thousands of rounds with and it is as tight as the day it was made in the 40's. Wrights does a good job but Jim Wiegand is the best by far.

    A second for Roger Eubanks. Very good work.

    Don't recall the number off the top of my head. He is in information under Eubanks Gunsmithing, Homedale, Idaho.

    Which one of the mentioned places can duplicate the original bluing on a milled rib barrel. I don't know if they are rust blued but it is a flatter appearing blue than the 3 pin barrels.

    I sent a 1 of 5 w/ gold enlay Mod 12 frame to Wrights for re-blueing. It's due back in a few days. I'll let you know or post pictures when I get it.
