Default Gun Bluing Recommendation's?

Looking to re-blue a shotgun receiver. Need it blasted, polished & blued back to original.



Any local spots you can refer? Looking to get JUST the receiver done and spend less than $100...

For $100 you might look at a DIY project.

Most shops charge $40-$50/hour in labor

To match bluing on a receiver to the barrel is an art form.

You can get lots of spray on finishes that would dress up an older gun.

Im thinking about beadblasting and polishing myself. I just need a shop to blue. I have been quoted about $80 to reblue...

Wonder what a chrome receiver would look like on the B2000?

before blasting, maybe try some 0000 steel wool from the home depot.
