    I'm looking to refinish an old Belgian BAR 7mm that my grandfather left to me and a Remington pump .06. The blueing is pretty worn in places on the receivers and barrels and I don't want to risk the steel by carrying them until I've had a new hot-blueing taken care of. Also the BAR has to manually work the bolt; I think the gas system needs to be cleaned/serviced.

    Has anyone on the forum had this service completed here locally (Oregon / SW Washington)? Who would you recommend? Do any of you have before/after pics of the work.

    They're both awesome rifles with a crap-ton of sentimental value; I don't want to risk them on sub-par service.

    Thanks for the help :D

    I would call Dave at Southridge firearms in Orting, he could help you out you could go up there or ship it. He does great work.
