A couple of weeks ago, I sent my MX-3 Receiver and Iron plus 2 trigger bodys and parts to AL LINGHAM at 107 W. KELSO St. in Tucson, Ariz. for reblueing. Al only had them about 10 days. I got them back yesterday~~~Great Job and about 1/2 the price that I expected !!!
We have been using Al for a while. Always a good job, quick, and reasonable. Also been to his house for a barbeque. THANKS AL. Always ready to help.........merlyn..... ps, we will have a few guns in for service this January!!
Avaldes........thanks for the reply. I'm so clueless re metallurgy.
So, these gold decals are left on the gun while the bluing process takes place!? That is what you're saying. And then they stay in place during some kind of polishing/buffing too? I be very confused. Many P guns are engraved with their designation and then gold colored filled but for some years they only used decals. So, how do these decals stay intact?? Or replaceable...and from where?? Help me, please.
I don't know about decals. The gun above and all of my Perazzis have gold lettering that is actual gold pressed into the engraving. They give the engraving a slight dove-tail to the edge and then hammer in the gold wire to make the letters. Very carefully they make the surface of the gold and the steel flat. Once in place, the gold is part of the receiver and can withstand the polishing and bluing process.
