    Does anyone have a clue of anyone in the northwest that does this type of finish on firearms??? I can also ship the gun if there is a reputable business out there that does this but would prefer to transport myself. Any help would be great. Thanx

    You can buy a DIY kit, they do work great if you get the prep work right. I've done pistol frames and small parts, they come out looking professional.

    That sounds like a good idea but the gun I am looking to have done is pretty spendy and I really wouldn't want to screw it up. That's why I'm looking for a professional but thanks a lot for the idea, maybe i will try it on a cheap 22.

    It's not rocket surgery, the part has to be CLEAN, the chemical mix correct and the temperatures correct.
