    Default Gunshops that will blu owner polished firearm

    I used to get this done at a shop that is now too busy to offer the service. I used to do gunsmithing professionally and used to have a hot bluing set-up but no longer do.

    Does anyone know of a smith who offers this service? I am in Beaver County but depending on where the shop is I could ship.

    It's kind of far away (Friona, TX) but check out Tyler Gunworks (https://www.tylergunworks.com/). I personally know Bobby Tyler and he and his crew do excellent work at fair prices. He was even front cover pictured on Brownells main catalog several issues ago. They also do engraving and color casing. They are probably Turnbulls heaviest competitor (they are actually friends).

    Thanks so much ! Just got off the phone with Fred and he is willing to blu a gun that I have polished. I am a graduate of PA Gunsmith School and ran my own shop for 5 years so I know how to polish a firearm. I don't know if that entered into his acceptance of my job or not but he was an easy person to talk with and I am looking forward to sending it off...and of course getting it back and reassembling it!

    Thanks for the contact info!!

    Is it worth making this into a sticky, for locations to get blue/refinishing work done? Feel like we get the question periodically but no good centralized place for answers

    Fred is a great guy and probably the most knowledge guy I know about old-school gunsmithing.

    Cromatic Coatings and Arms Westown, NY, Not far from the PA-NY-NJ tri-state border. I sold him all my bluing gear and helped him get set up and running. Does good work and Cerakote also.
