    I just got a 4" 29 Smith that had been left in a leather holster forever. The bluing on the cylinder is messed up and lightly etched, anybody have a good source to blue either the cylinder or the whole gun? It's useable as is but I'd really rather have it look like it should.

    Send it to S&W. I have polished them and blued them before, but it is labor intensive to get it to look right. For the money, hard to beat the S&W factory job...
