Default Let's take color case hardening

I'd like to have this done to the reciever, buttplate and fore end cap on my new Winchester 1892 short rifle. Other then Turnbull, does anybody know of anybody local or not that will do a good job?

I did post this in the Gunsmith forum.

This place does color case hardening. I will be sending a shotgun to them shortly for blueing.

That said, why would you waste money to case harden an already nicely blued gun? Maybe after awhile if it gets worn, but right off the bat with a new gun, you might reconsider.

I sent then an email earlier today but I'm liking Wyoming Armory.

Iím not much for color case hardening I guess. I have an uberti lever (left) that is case color hardened (fake, with an acid bath), and Iíd be much happier if it was just normal blue. The other one has accents that are color cased hardened like the lever and trigger. Stuff like that I donít mind. I just like plain I guess.

honestly, if you are going to take the time and pay for the job... Why wouldn't you send it to the best?

My vaquero went to turnbull.

Most of the gun is still high polished blue, it's just the reciever, buttplate and forend cap.
I'm going to talk to them about removing the tang safety and maybe the rebound hammer crap.

This is the first gun that I've designate to be for my grandson. The plan for the next one will be a Standard Manufacturing SA revolver.
