    So I got that nice old 14-2 Service in .357mag, and want to get it high polish blued. Don't want parkerized or flat, high polish blue for me on this gun because it came that way and it is a beautiful gun. Just need refinish....

    I hear great things about Ford's and the pictures I've seen of their work are very impressive.

    I've been told that the old-styled bluing found on old S&W and Colt revolvers isn't available any more because of ecological concerns. Whether other companies offer it these days, I don't know -- I'd make sure the process is the same, though.

    I'm a big fan of hard chroming. It is incredibly hard, protects against rust, wears much better than blue (forever, in fact) and is very thin.

    But it's not anywhere near as beautiful, alas!

    Here is a link to the guy who used to manage the bluing department for Dan Wesson. He now has his own shop. Super guy. www.blueridgebluing.com

    In the past DWs had to be copper plated before nickling(or chrome plating) as the nickle or chrome would not adhere to the metal. I don't know if that is still true but I would find out before attempting it.

    Blueridgebluing or Fords. Have you checked to see if anyone local does quality work?

    No but I might ask around at a couple gun shops....good tip. I never think there is anyone local that does anything anymore here in the Albuquerque area! And usually I am right so I kind of gave up even trying to find local pros.

    Blue Ridge Blueing use to do DW's new work for them. That would be a good place to start.

    I talked to the guy at Blue Ridge so I am sending it there. I'll do a full report after I get it back. He is a very nice guy and did indeed use to blue for Dan Wesson, in fact he may have blued my gun originally!
