  • Scope installations on rifles with customer furnished scope, base  and rings, $65.


Rust Bluing

  • Most Rifles and Shotguns $350

  • Most Handguns $300

Note: Rust bluing is a time-consuming process.  Most guns require from 12-15 rustings, followed by carding away the rust to leave a beautiful black oxide finish.  It is the most durable form of bluing available and will generally outlast any cold and most hot caustic bluing.  It has been used for well over 1000 years. It was found on early Japanese swords.  In Europe it was used on straight razors. When steel firearms appeared, bluing was a necessary step to ensure that they would resist harsh weather without rusting or fowling.

For small parts that won't receive a lot of wear, Nitre bluing may be the better option.  Nitre bluing  of small parts begins at $35.
