There are several quality shops that do Gun blueing. I have emails into them today.

My question therefore is...

Anybody know of any blueing shops close to you or where you have seen the work?

Researching a possible new 38 Super build. I should know better but it keeps me busy. :-D

TIA

It's getting harder and harder to find a shop that does good bluing. Coated finishes are the craze now. It's expensive to set up to do hot bluing so unless a gunsmith is sure he's going to get a lot of business, he won't bother.

You are correct. Given the restrictions on chemicals, the old timers are retired or gone.

I have an email into one asking for a quote on just the frame, Beavertail and slide. Haven’t heard back. They get $250 for a complete gun in high polish blue. I’ll disassemble and send just the parts.

For now it’s just in the works but the firearm would be a high polished blue with silver parts. We all know how this could add up. Depends on the cost of the firearm first. Tracking one on GB but he is about $50 high on value. When it says Kimber this equals higher value but there is a limit for me.
