I told my dad that I bought an AR and he mentioned the old 22 I used to shoot as a kid.

He's basically giving it to me but it needs to be reblued. How much would that cost and where in the bay can I have it done? My dad attempted doing it himself some years back but didn't do a very good job at it.


I tried doing a google search to get more info on it, but the only thing I found was that the company was sold to Savage Arms in the early 1920s.

The following is engraved on the barrel near the rear sight.

STEVENS MODEL 56
J. Stevens Arms Company
Chicopee Falls, Mass USA
22 Short Long or Long Rifle

On the bottom of the barrel its engraved with STEVENS Buckhorn Rifle
