Need to Re-Blue a Barreled Action



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a Springfield Model of 1922 barreled action that I want to refinish. Can anyone recommend someone that can do quality rust bluing, (browning)?

mel doyle 208 790 8086 in culdesac idaho. hes been a gunsmith for over 50 years and does the old school hot salt method. i've had over 10 done by him and they are just outstanding. two choices of finish to choose from. i just had two remington 22s redone and he usually runs 125 bucks which is ridiculous for all the work he does. fast turn around too. usually within a week. has orders coming in from across the nation so it's good advice to call and let them know yours is on the way. you will not be disappointed. he also guarantees his work and if you happen to scratch it in the future, send it back and he'll redo for free.

Rust bluing.................

Glenrock Bluing in Glenrock, Wyoming is one of the best in the business. Price for slow rust bluing is $595 - $695. I had my Springfield 1922 rust blued by Ed La Pour, but Ed has recently retired.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I currently have the barrel off and on its way to Freischutz Shop in Fairfield, PA to be relined. Once I get it back, I will decide if I rust blue the barrel and action or just the barrel. I am pretty sure the barrel was re-blued at some time, but not rust blued.

The bore was a sewer pipe and that's being kind. I have never seen one as badly pitted.

Here's a picture that will horrify you.

I wish I'd seen the post about the reline.
I've done business for 40 years with Bob's custom firearms in Palmetto Ga.
770-463-4140 He's as good as they come with reasonable prices.

You could have delivered your rifle in person.
