Need hot salts bluing?

I offer several finishes from flat or satin to master hot salts bluing. Nitre blue as well. I also offer general gunsmithing including wood stock repair and re-finishing.
Next session, 5/24 and 5/25.

contact me with questions or quotes.

Is bluing better than parkerizing?

Here is a Remington 870 Wingmaster with a satin finish I re-blued. I didn't take a before pic but there was some rust and minor pitting. there was a lot of wear. The guy tried to cold blue the whole thing. Not recomended...

I wish you would have taken a before pic! I'm looking to get a semi-auto 30-.06 rifle redone. There still appears to be some pitting visible on that shotty though it could just be the pic

Yes, there is. The customer requested a bead blast only. We discussed the pitting at length. I offered to polish it out but he need it back ASAP. I bead blasted it with 80 grit bead media to, at least, blend it.
It is, perhaps, not the best picture to show off my skills but it was the first out of the new set up.
I have a Weatherby mark V that was in a house fire that I am restoring that I do have to polish out. It's a complete restore and I am documenting it as I go. It will be a while before those pics are up.
I will be posting pics of a marlin 336 that I am re-bluing this next session though.

Marlin 336 re-finish.

Here is some pics of a Marlin 336 I just finished.
The barrel is done in a spun brushed finish. The receiver was hand polish to a near-mirror. Barrel bands were nitre blued to a grey brushed and the screws given a high polish and nitre blued to an iridescent blue. I polished the new magazine plug to a mirror finish and nitre blued the same as the screws. You can't really see it in the photo but it looks like a glass marble stuck in the end.

The owner gave me some "artistic license" so I thought I would show off a little...
Check out the slide show below.
