    I bought an older gun that is in great shape but the blue on the slide has been worn off by holster wear. I know some old guns are better left alone but this won't affect the value of this gun since it is not very sought after.

    I am just clueless as to what it would cost to have it refinished in the Salem/ Portland area. Any idea on what that goes for?

    Also, anyone with personal experience know what 'smith does a good/ better job?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Look in the vendor area. I know that at least 2 vendors provide refinishing services.

    Take it over to Todd at Koonce Custom. He's in Salem. I've seen enough of his work to know he does decent work and will charge a reasonable price.

    And 1 more vote for Todd.
    He has 2 of my rifles in his shop right now getting work done on them.
    As soon as i decide on what parts i want to use,he is going to be building my .338 Edge also.
