So I traded a guy some brass for a Savage 338 Federal barrel. It's been cut down and recrowned then painted some nasty gray paint. It's tough paint, maybe epoxy or something. If I want to have it refinished can just the paint be stripped off then Gunkoted or should it be stripped and reblued? The crown has had the paint chipped and it looks cold blued underneath. It's going on a hunting rifle that gets soaked every year so I want something that really resists rusting and I want it colored black to match the rifle. Anybody on the west side of Portland that does quality rebluing or refinishing?
