Thread: Blueing question

  1. #1

    Default Blueing question

    I have a Ruger MKII that I would like reblued. Ruger states on their webpage that they charge $50 to reblue. That seems like a nominal price for a factory job versus cold bluing myself. Does anyone do a comparable service here in the state? Any input is appreciated.

    That is an incredibly cheap price even with the postage. J.

    It would be absolutely impossible to find anyone to beat Rugers price. I had them reblue some firearms a while back and was extremely happy.
    Locally it would most likely cost you 3 or 4 times that, maybe more.

    Even paying shipping both ways that is a great deal. I've also found Rugers factory bluing to be very good. Last time I looked into getting a rifle hot tanked blued it was about $150.

    Blueing is like painting, all the work is in the prep, and it's what makes the difference between a quality job and something to be ashamed of.

    I'd highly recomend against trying to refinish a gun with cold blue, been there, done that, and wasn't the least bit happy with the results.

    I also wish they'd do non rugers
