They're in Knoxville, TN, but they're good. You can just ship them the barrel, or take it up there yourself. I had them do a couple of pistols. I drove them there, and just recently drove back and picked one up. They did a great job on it. The other one I may have them send me, though...40 bucks versus the cost of gas for a 600 mile round trip...

Dang....somebody resurrected my 2008 thread?

Got that rifle reblued 5 years ago. A custom 300 Win mag made by TC Kennon out of Atlanta in the 70's. The previous owner killed a deer with it and left a blob (not a drop) of blood on the barrel and it corroded the barrel something fierce. It was then given to me as a gift. Now she looks beautiful and kills deer.

My buddy Brandon Stone did the reblue. He's the best I've ever seen...takes his time, polishes to original condition without smearing lettering and is the most anal gunsmith I've ever seen...it has to be perfect before he gives the gun back to you. while remaining very reasonable on price. Also cerekotes as well. In North Augusta, SC.

I believe Oakridge Custom Finishing in Warner Robins can hook you up. It is on Moody Rd, just south of Russell.

I thought surely they would do blueing.

Did you call them or just go by what was on the webpage? I have never asked them, but you would think they could blue. Plain old cold blue is quite easy and most can do it at their home. I have done countless ones, not sure they are show quality, but many look as good as new.
