    Most any smith who does bluing. However, much easier prep, as coarse
    glass beaded instead of polish. Finish applied simular to chrome plate
    rather than an oxidation of blue.

    Not in the Portland area. Try the yellow pages in local phone book.
    There are two in this area. A local smith that has done several Garands
    for me. Stripped down, I believe the cost was $85. A couple of parts
    were tricky the first couple of times taking them apart and putting them
    back together. The second a barrel maker almost to the Calif boarder.
    No clue as to charges or if he only does refinsh and finish on his own
    work.

    I am waiting to get my FFL back and once that happens I'll be all set up to do parkerizing. BTW I'm in Salem.
