Hi All,
A friend of mine is restoring a Martini .22 rimfire training rifle. It was in pretty bad shape so he is having to sleeve the barrel and re finish the receiver.

Can anyone recommend someone who can color case the receiver and re blue the barrel?

Howdy!
Try the "Doug Turnbull Restorations" website.
Thanks for your time.

Turnbull is one of the only ones who'll do aftermarket case coloring of receivers. Lots of other guys can do other parts, but receivers require some special fixtures to prevent warping

Thanks guys! If my friend goes through with the restoration I will definitely post pictures.
