A friend of mine has a Ithaca 12GA. Mod. #51 Auto. Vent Rib barrel he's asking $150.00 bucks for the gun? I already have 3 shotguns.( Browning A5, Rem,1100,Ithaca 37) I know the price is good.
But the gun needs Re-bluing. He's keep it in a case for last 10yrs and it's gotten rusty:eek:
If your where going to send out a firearm for re-blueing? Whats the cost$$?
And who would you send it too?

Thanks

I'd check functional condition first, finish second. If it works fine, I'd jump on it...rebluing a long gun would start in the $120-150 neighborhood and can be done later. Just clean up the rust as best you can for the time (do a search on rust removal), lube and shoot.
