    I purchased a BAR that's nice except for a 4"or so portion on top/sides of the barrel where the blue was worn off, apparently from hanging in a truck or four-wheeler rack. I would like to have the barrel removed and re-blued to match original finish as close as possible. I talked to Brownell and they advised it can easily be done just depends on the Smith/Bluer having the right receiver wrench and vise so as to not tweak the action and mar the new finish when re- installing. Also head spacing should not be a problem. Bottom line---Not a big deal and the cost should be 1/2 have of full re-blue or less if you have the tools. I prefer not to cold blue the spot or re-blue the whole gun as the rest is real nice. Anybody interested in doing this and giving me a price? Sorry for being long winded. Thanks

    Call billy tierce in Utica. If anybody has the tools to remove that barrel he will and he does bluing.

    Billy does blueing. He does it in batches so you'll want to get in on it before he gets busy working on guns during deer and duck season.
