    Default Firearm Refinisher in Allentown Area

    Can anyone recommend or know of a smith who does refinishing/bluing work? Most smiths don't blue any more or they do Cerakote. Not interested Cera or Durakote finishes. Looking for OEM type finish on a 1981 Ruger Security-Six pistol.

    (I've done cold blue and it's not what the Ruger needs.)

    You could get a quote from Ruger for refinishing. They would do a job at least as good as the factory job.

    For high polish similar to the old Colt Python Royal Blue, you are going to need a specialized smith, somebody like Hamilton Bowen, Jack Huntington or the like, and those guys likely wouldn't be local.

    Unfortunately I don't know of anybody local in the area who I would recommend for bluing work. That is one of those things that you really need to know what you are doing to get decent results.

    Thanks but Ruger doesn't support (blue, repair, etc.) old models like the Security Six because they don't have parts.
